      Over the past 13 years, from age 42 to 55, Dr. McGrory has totally replaced both of my hips and right knee, so far. I have him on speed dial for when the left knee is ready for his skillful hands. I have genetic osteoarthritis. All 3 surgeries were wonderfully successful. One hip had the posterior procedure using titanium & plastic (in 2003), the other had the anterolateral using ceramic & plastic (in 2015), and the knee was the standard method (in 2013). He is a medical magician!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. McGrory's Care Philosophy

       My goal is to offer safe, cutting-edge, evidence-based, non-surgical and surgical care for adult patients with hip and knee arthritis. My team and I offer comprehensive care and complete follow-up, including revision or re-do surgeries when indicated (patient expectations and active lifestyle sometimes wear out joint replacements!).

      I have been interested in the human body and the musculoskeletal system in particular, for as long as I remember. I enjoy the complexity and detail driven process of caring for patients with joint problems, and love the combination of mechanics and understanding of the biological response that surgical reconstruction entails.

      Anterolateral Hip Replacement

      Anterolateral hip replacement is considered a minimally invasive option for total hip replacement. It is performed through a single incision on the side of the hip, known as the "anterior." This allows the surgeon to access the diseased hip joint between the muscle groups, leaving the muscles and tendons intact. The surgeon replaces the hip joint after removing and resurfacing the diseased areas of the joint.

      Because the muscles and tendons are not cut or detached during this procedure, the prosthetic joint is more apt to remain in place during the recovery process. Patients who have had anterolateral approach total hip replacement do not have the same movement restrictions as those who have had a posterior approach total hip replacement. Anterolateral approach typically results in less pain, quicker recovery and faster return to everyday activities. Most patients undergoing this procedure are able to walk with just a cane after seven to 10 days.
