Mary Modlich Anterior Hip Replacement - Total Hip Anterior Approach
About 8 years ago, I began experiencing pain in my groin when walking. It became chronic over the years in my back and hips. It slowly started to limit my activity to the point that I couldn't walk, stand, lift, sleep or do anything physical without pain.
I felt that hip replacements were for older people, and I wasn't yet 60. I went to Dr. Fowler because I knew he used a different technique than most doctors. His anterior approach to hip replacement is amazing! I was up walking as soon as I came out of the anesthesia. I was home that night feeling great! They only medicine I needed was Tylenol and Advil.
I started physical therapy the following week and I was ready to go back to work at 3 weeks post surgery. 4 months after the 1st surgery Dr. Fowler replaced my other hip. I am able to do things I haven't done in years! Walking, standing and playing with my grandsons is possible again. I even danced at my nephew's wedding! My goals were simple, I just wanted to go to the grocery store without pain, go to the zoo with my grandsons, and clean the house without having to spend the rest of the day in pain. I feel like a new person! Dr. Fowler and his staff were wonderful to work with. He has a great bedside manner, I highly recommend Dr. Fowler!!
