    I had a full left hip operation. After operation and PT, I am walking around with no more arthritic pain. I can cross my legs and am more flexible than before. One leg was a little longer than the other before the operation and they ended up perfectly the same length after. I have a very active lifestyle and it is nice to get back to that again. Great job Dr. Illgen!
