Joint replacement questions and concerns: One couple shares their experience

Howard and Sharry Hebert of Eau Claire know what it’s like to have severe pain in their joints. Howard’s knees were hurting him, and Sharry’s hip pain was so bad, she couldn’t sit down. For them, the best answer to easing their pain was joint replacement.

The Hebert’s had their surgeries at Marshfield Clinic Ambulatory Surgery Center in Eau Claire. Their orthopedic surgeon was Dr. Scott Cameron.

“I am blessed with my chosen profession that I can regularly help people with their mobility,” said Dr. Cameron. “It is very satisfying to take someone who is limping and in pain and change his or her life with a joint replacement. Both of these nice people are excellent examples of how knee and hip replacement can change lives for the better.”

Like many people getting ready for joint replacement surgery, the Hebert’s had questions.
