Hip pain in both hips since 1995.
Surgery performed by Thomas Schmalzried November 22, 2004. In my book, he is the best. He was very informative, supportive and accessible. My post-op recovery has been outstanding. I have some stiffness in the illiospoas tendons, probably due to scaring from the surgery. I am able to slowly stretch this out through careful, persistence stretching.
