    I need a hip replacement. I am 5’6” and weigh 300 lbs. I can barely walk now to having a great deal of pain. I am looking for an excellent surgeon in the Houston area. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Have you tried the clinic finder on our site.
    I'll see if @Jaycey might have access to some suggestions.
    I would guess you would have multiple options in such an urban location.
    I loved in Houston more than 20 years ago...loved it.
    You will want to look for a surgeon with lots of THRs under his belt!

    @Angel63 I am afraid I don't have any suggestions as I am in the UK. Do try the clinic finder on the Homepage.

    I've changed your thread title slightly so that members in your area know you need their input.
