MAKOplasty Anterior Total Hip -Success Stories

“A surgeon associated with the American Hip Institute performed my total hip replacement surgery (anterior method with MAKOplasty) on Feb. 4, 2013.  I had been diagnosed six years earlier at age 58, and I was determined to research the best doctor for my procedure.  The doctor gave a lecture on MAKOplasty related to hip surgery in July of 2009, and I was impressed.  The orthopedic rock stars at Rush and NorthShore did not use this new technology.  After further exploring his excellent credentials, I chose my surgeon.

My surgery took place at Adventist Hinsdale Hospital.The surgeon called me at home before the surgery to answer some of my questions. I was pleased with my communication with my doctor and with his knowledgeable
physicians assistants.  The staff at the Hospital gave me excellent care.  When I returned home after surgery, I was surprised when I did not need any of my pain medications.  My doctor gave me goals to work toward, and I carefully followed the instructions of my physical therapist.

Today I am back at the health club for my aerobics, pilates, and weightlifting classes.  My limp is gone and I can walk for four miles.  Best of all, I was able to dance (really dance) at my daughter’s wedding on May 11, 2013.

I would highly recommend the American Hip Institute to anyone considering hip replacement surgery.”
