I was informed about the anterior approach hip replacement and Dr. Clark from my friends. Before surgery, I had to complete many medical clearances. In the end, the pre-surgical optimization process had a very positive effect on the outcomes of my hip. I believe the anterior approach is a less painful recovery process. Currently, I am able to complete all the activities that I was doing prior to surgery and more! I walk, garden, and mow my lawn without any pain. I currently live a worry-free lifestyle without any concerns related to my hip. My wife and I are very pleased!
