Christopher - Septic Arthritic Hip

I was an athlete that started with pain in my hip and groin area. I went to the local emergency room and they told me it was a pulled muscle, gave me pain killers and sent me on my way without even an x-ray. The next day the pain was excruciating. My parents took me to Rothman Orthopaedic Institute Urgent Care in Marlton, NJ. Through their testing, and an emergency MRI they found that I had an Arthritic Septic Hip. They had me rushed to CHOP to see the best pediatric hip surgeon and within 24 hours I was in surgery to wash the hip and spent 5 days on IV antibiotics.

If it was not for the thorough testing of Rothman Orthopaedic Institute I would not be here today. They knew it was not just a pulled muscle and did everything they could to get to the root of my excruciating pain. The place at Rothman Orthopaedic Institute that does the MRI testing did not take my parent's insurance. They did not even want me to leave to get an MRI somewhere else. They got on the phone with the insurance company and had them approve and emergency MRI, so that we did not waste any more time. Rothman Orthopaedic Institute not only saved my athletic career, but my life as well.

As you can see from the pictures, Rothman Orthopaedic Institute knew it was not a pulled muscle. Thank you Rothman Orthopaedic Institute!
