I am 48 years old, and planning on having hip replacement surgery this summer. I was very impressed with Dr. Kruezer in houston. I had a telehealth meeting with Mr. Lancaster the PA for Dr. K. I would be getting the corin mini hip with 36mm ceramic on ceramic head and cup. I live near Des Moines, Iowa and there is a convenient 2 hour direct flight from Des Moines to Houston. Unfortunately, my wife is unable to go with me because she will be caring for our daughter who has cerebral palsy. I don’t know how realistic it would be for me to have hip surgery, stay in a hotel, and then fly home on my own. I’m sure that I could find a good surgeon near home. I just think the hip used by Dr. K is a good one for active clients like myself. Does anyone know if Inov8 (where Dr. K works) would provide assistance for someone out of state like myself? They said I would need to stay in Houston for one week before flying home.
