I am a retired teacher, but continue to teach drivers education. Before I had the anterior approach total hip arthroplasty, I was in a lot of pain. Since surgery, I am pain free! I can teach drivers education and climb the stairs at the school without a problem. I am also a radio broadcaster for Waverly-Shell Rock High School Wrestling and Wartburg College Wrestling. There are times that I climb stairs to the very top of a gymnasium to broadcast. Since surgery, I can do so without pain or concerns about my hip! Dr. Clark was open about my treatment options and took excellent care of me throughout the entire surgical process. My hip feels great and I wish I would have had the hip replacement it sooner!
