In December of 2016, Dr. Owen O'Neill performed an anterior hip replacement for me and I couldn't have asked for a better result. I was walking without any assistance upon discharge and was methodically able to clear a light dusting of snow the next day (I like a clean sidewalk). After one week I was able to walk up to 3 miles. After two weeks I was able to do 5 miles. Of course, there was the usual inflammation & soreness that I felt at the end of each day because of the healing process but it's just walking. I was able to go further each day without a problem. After 10 weeks, I hiked down from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon to Phantom Ranch and back out the next day. I highly recommend this trip and am looking forward to doing it again someday. A friend of mine had the same surgery as I did this year and she has had the same success that I have. I highly recommend the anterior approach because you'll be back on your feet immediately.
Thanks again to Owen O'Neill, Jessie Donovan, and the rest of his team!
