Total Hip Replacement

My goal with all patients is to preserve their hip joint. In some situations, the level of arthritis, or erosion of the cartilage of the joint, makes this impossible. In these patients, a total hip replacement is an excellent option for eliminating pain and restoring function.

As I perform both arthroscopic and replacement surgeries for the hip, I do not have a particular bias. As a patient, I will help you objectively understand your hip pathology and what all of your potential options are. I will help you decide on the surgery that will be the best and most definitive for you.

I perform 100% of your surgery and do not train fellows or residents. I take the responsibility you have entrusted me with very seriously and put everything that I have into your operation.

General Post-Op Instructions

Rehabilitation following surgery, in many instances, is as important as the surgery itself.  It requires a commitment from the patient to make it a part of their daily routine.  I believe that physical therapists and athletic trainers have an integral role in guiding and assisting patients through this process.  I will work with both you and your therapist to ensure that your rehabilitation is appropriate and that you are progressing and improving, as you should.

Orthopaedic rehabilitation is always tailored to the individual patient’s goals and is affected by the type of surgery that was performed and intra-operative findings.  The total duration for therapy and progression to return to full activity is always individualized.  Please see these links for more information on therapy guidelines for specific surgeries.
