I would highly recommend Dr. Owen O'Neill and his team to perform anterior hip replacement surgery; and through the EXCEL Program, if you qualify. I am accustomed to a high level of customer service, due to my previous profession, and have to say I was blown away by the professional service I received from the first call to the final check up by the entire team! They also did an excellent job in managing my safety during Covid-19. Dr. O'Neill doesn't push the surgery, but explains the details of your situation, options available and lets you decide. He is extremely knowledgeable and demonstrates his concern for you and your situation. He is genuinely a great guy.
Prior to surgery I was able to still do activities like golf and pickleball, but had a hard time enjoying them, due to hip pain that was only getting worse. After the surgery, I bounced back very quickly. I was walking 2 miles by the 2nd week post-op and felt 85% at 8 weeks, doing most things I love. At 10 weeks post-op, I played two rounds of golf and four hours of pickleball in 2 days and had no pain. Frankly, I was amazed that I was able to enjoy my activities and no longer have to compensate for pain. If your quality of life is not what you want due to hip issues, I encourage you to go see Dr. O'Neill and his team at TCO! I would also encourage you to dedicate time to do the pre and post-op exercises they ask you perform. I think that also made a big difference in the recovery time. LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE!
