    Offers pre surgery therapy for 6 weeks. meet with the hospital orthopedic unit to learn what to expect while in the hospital. Physical therapy is set up for after the procedure and you go to the location to meet with and are told what to expect. All of these things help to make this surgery a procedure that you are prepared for. My results were wonderful and Dr.McKirgan is at the top of my Doctor list.

    Dr. McKirgan was my surgeon for total hip replacement March 31, 2015. He explained with care and clarity the procedure, risks, pre-op preparation, and post-op expectations and regimen. He outlined a comprehensive treatment program which could be carried out largely by the Joint Center at IRMC which provided me continuity, convenience and support. I had a post-op concern which he immediately addressed. A year later I am pain free and back to most activities.
