Diagnosed with severe deterioration in both of my hip joints, I needed a full double hip replacement. The first surgery replaced the left side, then a year later, the right was also completely replaced. My new hips were remarkably pain free right from the first day I stood on them.

Mobility cannot be underestimated. There are so many things that cease to exist without it.

Walking is once again a leisurely experience, and kneeling to hug a grandchild is a gratifying moment. My surgery had an immediate impact on my life. Things that I was not able to do for 30 years were suddenly possible and easy.
