Michael Corr, Northport, NY hip replacement
I am a 50 year old former rugby player, who had a hip replacement 6 years ago - performed by Dr Pellicci (who told me my lifestyle would not change). He was right. I am entered in the September, 2012 Iron Man Wales (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, and a 26.2 mile run). The whole process at HSS was fantastic. If you lie in pain each night because of your hips, just get them replaced.
