At 72 years of age, I visited Dr. O’Neill for pain and stiffness in my right hip as well as back pain from my right leg being 1/2” shorter than the left one. The pain and lack of mobility was finally infringing on my everyday life. Hip replacement was inevitable. On February 7th, 2019, I had anterior hip replacement surgery. Dr. O’Neill also lengthened the right leg by 1/2” making legs and pelvis even.
After 13 days, my husband and I flew to Arizona where I continued the rebuilding instructions I was given by Dr. O’Neill’s team. Six weeks after surgery, I was able to resume biking, hiking, working out, playing pickleball, without pain. In the attached picture, 16 weeks after surgery, my husband and I went on a 10 day bike tour through the Dordogne region of France.
Hip replacement surgery has made such a positive difference in everyday life as well as all the physical activities I love doing. I didn’t realize how much I was compensating for the pain in my right hip and overworking the left side of my body. After surgery, my back and sacrum pain was gone. Riding the hills in France was so enjoyable and I was much stronger and more confident in my biking. What a blessing!!
Thank you to Dr. O’Neill and the team. I would wholeheartedly recommend Dr. O’Neill and the minimally invasive hip replacement surgery. I wish I would’ve done it sooner.
