Patient PerspectiveNancy Stojsic

Since being diagnosed with osteoarthritis, Nancy, a past patient of Bridgepoint's orthopedic unit, had a number of surgeries for complications with her joints. She arrived at Bridgepoint for orthopedic rehab after getting her left shoulder replaced. 

"My goals are to be able to drive again and do my own hair before getting my right shoulder replaced," says Nancy. After almost five weeks at Bridgepoint, her shoulder improved considerably and her physiotherapist says she is doing well. "My daughter was so happy to see me able to use my left arm!" she says.
