Frequently asked questions
Are you scared?
More anxious than anything.
Where are you having your surgeries?
I'm having my surgeries at Parkview North Orthopedic Hospital in Fort Wayne, IN. My surgeon is Dr. Heisler.
How many young people need hip replacements each year?
Unfortunately, there are not concrete statistics available for total hip replacements in anyone under the age of 45 at this time. However, doctors have said the numbers increased substantially between 2000-2010. More awareness and a more durable implants are to thank for people having replacements younger and younger.
Is it worth it to have a THP in your 20s or 30s?
This is a RESOUNDING yes. This surgery isn't literally life or death, but it can make or break your quality of life. If I could hit rewind and do this while I was still in my 20s, before I spent 5 and a half years in pain, I would in a heartbeat. If you're in pain and nothing is working to relieve that pain, it's absolutley worth it.
