The pain in Mary's left hip was becoming unmanageable to the point that it was restricting her usual activities. She had visited a physician who gave her the recommendation for a traditional hip replacement but Mary wanted more.
A friend referred Mary to Orthopedic Specialist John Perry, MD with the Health First Physicians Group. "I was very impressed with him," says Mary, "and I had done quite a bit of research. When he explained anterior hip replacement, it sounded great because it was minimally invasive with a quicker recovery. And that was true! I was walking up and down stairs even before leaving the hospital. In fact, my occupational therapist and both my physical therapists dismissed me after my first visit saying that I did not need them. I felt great!"
Mary is back to her active lifestyle walking and gardening. "I'd recommend Dr. Perry and anterior hip replacement to anyone who's a good candidate. It was just what I needed."
Hip pain may be the result of a sudden injury such as a fall but could also be due to a degeneration of healthy tissue at the hip area.Explore More
