Hey Sean, I love what city of smoking Joe and 0B said above in regards to advice. My orthopedic had an outstanding reputation and also just luckily for me was a friend. He totally understood my desire to be very active and while he hasn’t had replaced hips, is an athletic guy at about age 60 and has replaced a hip of his nephew who is a former Green Beret and has exercise addictions like us 😉
When I inquired about posterior and anterior, he said “posterior only or this conversation is over… there are simply far too many risks with anterior“… that made the decision for me… I greatly trust him, and he was in Fattic. Hope that helps and best wishes! I am just over 2 1/2 years post THR and now contemplating having my other hip done, as I am starting to get more oa pain there.
