After cortisone shots for pain in her right hip, Diane found that daily activities continued to be restrained by worsening pain. Dr. O'Neill described to her the new anterior approach he had been studying and implementing for hip replacements and he recommended this approach to Diane.
With the right equipment, Dr. Owen O'Neill performed Diane's hip replacement and the outcome was fantastic! Diane states, "I was in the hospital for two days and went home with no restrictions. There was much less pain than the previous surgery on my other hip. My scar is five inches long-- half as long as the other one."
As soon as she came home from the hospital, Diane could get in and out of bed without assistance. In ten days, she no longer needed a walker or cane. She faithfully did physical therapy exercises, all at home!
