Dr. Lall fixed my hip pain — on my own terms!

Comeback Stories - American Hip Institute & Orthopedic Specialists

When my hip pain started over 2 years ago, I struggled to find a doctor who made me feel comfortable, or who could do the minimally-invasive anterior approach robotic hip replacement that I preferred. My hip pain got worse and worse, until I could no longer buy shoes that had laces. I couldn’t even put socks on! Everyday tasks became a painful challenge.

Finally, my brother told me about a commercial he saw for the American Hip Institute & Orthopedic Specialists: “It might be something you want to try, they have new and innovative approaches.” This is where I met Dr. Ajay Lall. Not only was Dr. Lall an expert in the robotic, anterior approach hip replacement that I wanted, but he made me feel at ease about surgery itself. I had a lot of questions, and he spent over 45 minutes with me during the initial consultation! I never felt like he was rushing our conversation, and felt very comfortable booking surgery with him.

The operation went smoothly and I was back on my feet in no time. Just hours after arriving home after surgery, I was up and walking! Within two weeks, I was back at the gym working out. Dr. Lall had said to me before surgery, “One day, because it will feel so normal, you’ll forget I ever replaced your hip.” Of course, he was right! I have zero pain, zero discomfort, and everything has been fabulous.

I only wish I had come to Dr. Lall sooner — I put up with all of this pain for years for nothing! I know I’m going to need my right hip replaced as well, and this time, I’m not going to wait. At the first sign of pain, I’m getting it replaced. Thank you, Dr. Lall, for this wonderful experience!
