What Our Patients Think

My advice for anyone facing hip replacement, especially two hip replacements, is: ‘Don’t dread it; do it! Do the direct anterior approach’. The reward is significant… The total surgical and rehab cycle time for bilateral/direct-anterior vs. bilateral/posterior approach is about 25 percent. I threw my cane away after only two and a half weeks.

Before my hip replacement surgery, I felt so old. Crossing the parking lot and walking in public in general was embarrassing. Now, post-surgery, I have my life back and I can do things I have not done in years.

“Before my hip replacement surgery, walking and sitting hurt. It was too hard to even go to the store,” Alicia explains. “Now, I’m working comfortably, riding a stationary bike for exercise and feel like I have a whole new life.”
