I am new to this site. I am a 55-year old masters runner scheduled for hip surgery next month. I ran an 18:15 5k last year, but I have advanced osteo-arthritis in both hips and it is very hard for me to run or train now.
I was planning to go with the Mako Robotic Surgery. My insurance just informed me they wouldn’t cover it. Does anyone have knowledge of the different types of surgeries and have any perspective on whether it would be worth it to wait and pursue the Mako Surgery down the road or to go with the conventional surgery.
Thanks for any insights!
