Stryker Hip Replacement
“I decided it was time when my daughter started to walk, and I couldn’t play with her.”
“I was diagnosed with degenerative osteoarthritis about 14 years ago. I couldn’t walk far. I couldn’t climb steps very well. I certainly couldn’t ride a bike. You name a daily activity you take for granted, I couldn’t do it. Finally, the pain got so bad, I decided to have my hips replaced when my daughter started to walk, and I couldn’t play with her. I couldn’t even pick her up. So I had both hips replaced within a week of each other. If you’re thinking about hip replacement, find a good surgeon, educate yourself, and make your own decision. You’ll know when it’s the right time.”
Results not typical and may vary by individual. Not all patients will reach the same activity level.
