Randolph S – about me

Watched this You Tube video on anterior hip surgery yesterday. The Latest Procedure – Anterior Hip Replacement Surgery -Very informative. This is about a year old. Dr. Firestone is the surgeon, out of Scottsdale. Almost an hour in length. http://youtu.be/1jb2nq_jRwI

Had a pre-op therapy evaluation and session today. Identified some additional exercises to enhance strength and flexibility.

Tomorrow, 05/15/14, I have my first consult with a local surgeon who specializes in this anterior approach. He is known for using the anterior approach. My second consultation is another week out with a Doctor who specializes in the SuperPath procedure, or the Northern approach..

I am sure neither Doctor will agree that I should keep my 100 mile ultra on my bucket list, but I am interested in the procedure and prosthesis that will give me the greatest potential! I have already accomplished my first 50 miler which was the Keys 100/50 Ultra in May of 2013.

My wife and I both love to run and both of us are entered in the Marine Corps Marathon , the end of Oct, 2014. (My fourth MCM and her second)She should be back in form after recovery and training from THR 3 weeks ago. We both will line up at the start and walk, jog, run our way forward. Will keep you posted.
