I had my left hip replaced the summer of 2013, and had a very good recovery. I came home the same day, had minimal discomfort and I was able to drive within 3 days. Dr. Haynes felt I would have a couple of years before my right hip would affect the quality of my life.
July, 2015, I had the right hip replaced. I knew what to expect this time. Same great outcome.
I am now 3 months post-op, and very happy with my recovery. I am a nurse and was familiar with the posterior approach for hip replacement. The recovery period was much longer and with more precautions. When I researched the anterior approach and patient’s outcomes, it was an easy decision. No regrets.
