Climbing the Stairway to Recovery
Every patient who has had hip replacement surgery must be able to successfully climb up and down CAMTA's "stairs to recovery" before they can be released from the hospital. So many people have stairs that they will need to negotiate once they get home, that they need to know exactly how to climb them without risking injury.
Amazingly, most of the patients who have had their hips replaced recover extremely quickly and are discharged within two days after surgery.
Maria Viracocha is a bit of a special case. Maria lives on a mountainside, and has at least 50 steps to climb before she even reaches her house. Physiotherapists decided to keep her an extra day in the hospital to give her a little more time to practice to ensure that she was strong enough before she went home.
Having made it up, Maria makes her way down the CAMTA stairs with Physiotherapist Brenda Corie offering encouragement and support.

Thank you and God bless. Ecuador is a wonderful country, but it is very hard because there is no money. There is no way we could have paid two or three thousand dollars for this surgery plus medicine.
