Favorite Activities

My wife and I are very happy to be members of the Eugene-Springfield community. In addition to providing a wonderful environment for our 3 children, it has given us easy access to our favorite leisure activities, including hiking, skiing, and spending time on the coast. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife and children, traveling, exercising, and watching collegiate and professional sports.

Slocum doctors contribute to research on speeding knee surgery recovery

Slocum Center doctors advance research to improve knee replacement outcomes

“I met with Dr. Shah about an issue with my left knee. After an examination and x-rays it was determined that I had osteoarthritis with bone on bone complication. The decision was to have a complete knee replacement and it was scheduled for early June. I would have to say, from conversations with other people that I was an exception in the fact that luckily I experienced little pain throughout this endeavor. At the same time, I would have to describe the whole procedure as over the top. To explain: First of all was Dr. Shah; I would describe him as a very competent physician, direct, but also very thorough. At the same time he has a warmth about him that is very soothing. I got the idea that I was dealing with a very competent surgeon, and that proved to be true. The Slocum Center, along with River Bend Hospital, goes out of their way to make sure you as a patient have a thorough understanding of what is going to happen and what you may expect. You definitely do not go into this blindly. At the hospital, you are met with friendly, accommodating staff that further reduces the anxiety. Once the actual operation had been completed you are comfortably taken care of in your room and begin your venture with physical therapy. Again, the physical therapist went out of her way to deal with my concerns and to make sure I would feel comfortable on my returning home. The next 6 weeks involved trips to the Slocum Center for physical therapy. Here is where the real wealth of the Slocum Center resides. These therapist do not only take care of the rehabilitation of your knee, but also in their own ways deal with the psychological trauma of the surgery. I cannot more highly commend and recommend the treatment I received there and Julie Embree, you are a "Rock Star." Overall, this was a much better experience than I ever anticipated, and I would not hesitate, in fact, I would encourage people to utilize the Slocum Center for orthopedic issues.”
