Joint Replacement Surgery at OAHS

Dr. Michael Vener, Ranet Schmeichel, Ray Smith, PA

 

      My name is Ranet Schmeichel. As with many people in my age group, I experienced arthritis in my hip causing great discomfort that was affecting my normal daily activities. After numerous treatment options, I chose to have my joint replaced.

      As OR Coordinator at OAHS I knew that over a year go we went into a venture with Dr Vener and Dr. Johnston from Glacial Lakes Orthopaedics to perform these Joint replacements here. The most up-to-date equipment was purchased, training for OR and auxillary staff  to provide superior care was conducted. Experiencing not only the expertise of the Surgeons but also Anesthesia, OR and all Auxillary staff; I chose to have my procedure done at Ortonville Area Health Services.

       I was not disappointed. Beginning with Dr Longnecker and clinic staff through the Pre-op, Surgical and Post-op stay all staff that I came in contact with were professional and skilled in meeting all my individuals needs. There is nothing like being “at home” with people you know and trust during a difficult time. If there ever becomes a need to have another joint replaced I won’t hesitate to choose OAHS again.
