Thorn is a 40-year-old steel construction worker who is married and has three daughters and one son. He likes to relax at home in Cambodia, help his wife cook, and watch TV in his free time.
In December of 2016, Thorn first came to our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), complaining of hip pain. He heard about CSC from a friend and traveled with his wife for three hours to get to the clinic.
Thorn’s initial pain was on his right side and then spread to both sides, making it difficult for him to walk. Surgeons at CSC successfully performed a total hip replacement surgery on his right side.
Thorn feels better and experiences less pain on his right side. His wound has healed nicely. However, he still experiences hip pain on his left side.
On January 9, surgeons at CSC will perform a total hip replacement on Thorn’s left side to relieve him of pain. The requested $781 will cover all associated medical expenses, including Thorn’s two-week stay at the hospital.
