Dr. Lenihan

Hi I am Mike Lenihan. I am an Orthopedic Surgeon. I’m used to being on the other side of the equation, on the physician side rather than the patient side. Over the last year and half, on three different occasions, I have had the opportunity to be on the patient side. The first surgery was a simple low back disc herniation. The surgery was done at the surgery center and I was able to go home the same day. I felt great and went back to work four days later. I work in an office environment so it is not taxing but I also am responsible for Trauma coverage and was able to return to Trauma call within 4 weeks.

I was thrilled with the outpatient surgery center; it was an extremely positive experience in every way. The facility was very clean, the staff was friendly, on time, and they always treated me well.

My husband was even allowed to spend the night in the recovery room with me, and I had a nurse available at all times.I loved being able to go home the next day, and have my family take care of me rather than being in a hospital or rehabilitation center. Dr. Henderson is an amazing surgeon that was uplifting and accommodating. As a bigger woman, past doctors have ridiculed me, but he always treated me with the upmost kindness. He knew the importance of getting back on my feet because of my profession as a hair dresser, and I was able to work within 6 weeks.

After years of pain in my right knee, I elected to undergo Unicompartmental Knee Arthroplasty in February 2010 by Dr. John Serocki at the La Jolla Orthopaedic Surgery Center.

The surgery went very well. The skillful surgery performed by Dr. Serocki, the excellent 1:1 nursing care provided by the Surgery Center, and the supportive/encouraging physical therapists facilitated a problem-free recovery. This favorable experience influenced me to have the same procedure performed on my left knee nine months later. As with the first surgery, my recovery from the left UKA went very well also. I would not hesitate to refer anyone considering knee surgery to consult with Dr. Serocki and/or the La Jolla Orthopaedic Surgery Center.

Imagine being able to experience the vast mountain scenery on a ranch in Montana. Waking up to the peaceful sounds of nature and inhaling the rich mountain air were things Bob cherished. Even at 62 years old, he and his wife enjoyed hiking five or more miles a day around their property.

My total knee replacement experience was beyond my expectations! I was hesitant yet blessed with so many positive encounters that I will not hesitate to have my other knee replaced with Dr. Rodney Henderson in the same manner.
