My Lawrence Home Care of Westchester nurse cared for me for two weeks following my hip revision surgery. She was very professional, personable, caring and knowledgeable in her care for me. She knew exactly what to look for after hip surgery and even followed up her concerns of the wound with the Columbia Orthopedic Team. What is more, she gave me helpful tips on doing every day chores and advised what not to do to re-injure the hip following surgery. I would recommend Lawrence Home Care of Westchester to anybody requiring physical therapy following surgery.
