Patient Case History: Karen, Ruth, Alvin, Helen

Karen: Total Hip Replacement (THR)

Pre-Op

Patient Surgeon: S. Robert Rozbruch
Karen is 41 years old and several years back suffered a fractured acetabulum (hip socket) in a MVA. This was repaired with plates and screws. Over time she developed a painful stiff hip.

Post-Op

We performed a non-cemented THR (porous coated acetabulum and HA coated femoral stem). She is now much more active and has no pain.
