A collaborative effort of three key people - the patient who had both of his hips replaced by the age of 45, the orthopedic surgeon who performed the operation, and the physiatrist who supervised rehabilitation following the patient's second hip surgery. Each contributes unique insights into physical therapy for and the medical treatment of osteoarthritis.

As a 50 year old used to exercising, being told that I had to have a hip replacement came as a surprise (understatement of course). At that point I knew absolutely nothing about hip replacements, and wanted to get back to my previous level of fitness. I've had my surgery and came back to tell you that I don't know what I would have done without this book! It's written by an MD specializing in surgeries for 'younger' people, an MD specializing in rehab and a lawyer who has had 3 hip replacement surgeries and now plays tennis! It was crucial that I had read this book before my first visit to the surgeon. This book allows you to make the most out of what may be your only visit to the surgeon. The authors spend a lot of time on the decision to operate, as well as the operation itself and, especially important, how to rehab afterwards. Great exercises. Great patient perspective. A truly awesome book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
