    THR 1mo Post-op Posterior Left THR with Major Bone Graft

    Ah, the Rothman Institute! My step mother had both her hips replaced there. The first of which was an anterior approach done almost 20 years ago, the second about 10 years ago. Both are still going strong. Another friend, just this past year, had outpatient hip replacement there and was so...

    Glad I could be of service! Who was your surgeon for the first hip?

    THR 1mo Post-op Posterior Left THR with Major Bone Graft

    Right, I thought the same thing: Economy of words, clear formulation of ideas, and the ability to render multiple facets of information into a single lucid response. I think both McLawhorn and Nawabi share that trait. I’m sure many other surgeons do as well. Add in some excellent bedside manner...

    THR 1mo Post-op Posterior Left THR with Major Bone Graft

    It’s very weird how HSS categorizes the surgeons. Can’t always figure it out. Nawabi is part of the Sports Medicine dept, the Orthopedic dept and the Hip Preservation dept. McLawhorn was going to be my next choice. I know two people who had their hips replaced by him and both are very very...

    THR 1mo Post-op Posterior Left THR with Major Bone Graft

    It is far better than I expected!!! I’d never had surgery beyond having my wisdom teeth extracted, and was very apprehensive. But I was in so much pain and could barely walk, so I really had few options. I wanted my life back!! I feel extremely grateful to have access to such incredible medical...

    THR 1mo Post-op Posterior Left THR with Major Bone Graft

    I was so afraid to have surgery, especially after reading too many stories of bad outcomes. I will say that I agree with people who say to find the right surgeon. Quite honestly, I think that’s the hardest part.

    THR 1mo Post-op Posterior Left THR with Major Bone Graft

    Yes, the very same Dr. Nawabi. He is a joint replacement specialist, in that he does hundreds of them. He is, however, also seen as somewhat of a generalist because he does hips, knees and shoulders. I am so happy I found him. I cannot recommend him enough. I spent a lot of time doing my...

    THR 1mo Post-op Posterior Left THR with Major Bone Graft

    Thought I’d post an update now that I’m almost 1 month post op. First of all, I cannot say enough good things about my experience at HSS!!! Every single person with whom I interacted was kind and patient, and I felt as though I received the very best quality of care. As for my surgeon, Dr...

    THR THR and Bone Graft

    I’m glad to hear all was a success. I have a giant bone cyst as well. The surgeon did say that they use the portion of the removed femur for the graft.

    THR THR and Bone Graft

    Hi all! After probably waiting five years too long (denial, fear and misdiagnosis are powerful factors), I am scheduled to have posterior THR and a bone graft on my left hip on August 10th. Other hip is bad, but not even close to being as painful as the left. I have advanced OA, large bone cyst...
