My hip replacement was like a miracle for recovery. Small incision, no muscles cut. He told me that in two-three weeks I would be dancing. He was right, I could've easily danced the New Year in! Had knee replacement less than 6 months later and followed his recovery therapy plan. Knee works great without pain! Very happy with results.
