Success Stories

Lester Hartineux “My hobby is restoring antique tractors, and now I can …
… pain free.

“I live in Hamilton, Illinois and I suppose I could have stayed closer to home for my knee replacement, but I’m very happy I went to Hannibal. The hospital staff was fantastic, very
considerate and professional. And Dr. Bieniek was outstanding … I really liked his approach. I feel great and can do anything I feel like doing!”

“My back pain was excruciating,
but now I’m
… pain free.

“An out of town physician told me I would need major surgery. I got a second opinion from Dr. Basho, a spine specialist, at Midwest Orthopedic Specialists who recommended a minimally invasive procedure. The pain was gone literally overnight! And I can’t say enough good things about the nursing team and Hannibal Regional Hospital! The best care I could have gotten was right here at home!”

Jan Nemes“Now I can play with my grandchildren … pain free.

“It hurt to do just about anything…and I suppose I could have gone anywhere for
treatment, but staying near my family was important to me. The orthopedic care I received from Midwest Orthopedic Specialists and Hannibal Regional Hospital was truly outstanding. The hospital staff was wonderful and Dr. Burton is my hero! We’re so lucky to have world-class orthopedic care right here in our own backyard!”

Jacob McLerren

“An injury kept me
off the golf course, but now I’m playing again
… pain free.

I love the game … I even earned a scholarship to play golf at the college level. So when I broke my collar bone, I needed a specialist to get me back on the course. Dr. Baumann at Midwest Orthopedic Specialists saw me right away. He knew exactly how to restore my swing! And Hannibal Regional Hospital was fantastic … I didn’t have to travel far to get the latest care and treatment.”
