Hiking is a great low-impact, outdoor sport. It’s generally safe for patients to participate in after having a total hip replacement or ACL surgery. Read how these patients were able to find the right trail to recovery.

"This commendation goes to the team effort of three specific individuals that made it possible for me to continue to walk and live a normal unrestricted life. It started with the keen skills of Dr. Brian Halpern who instantly recognized that my sudden onset of shin splints was a serious lower back problem that had developed. I was training at 65 to take my first vacation in years to go climbing in the Alps."

"My revision surgery was performed May 9, 2013. I was the first patient to undergo this procedure utilizing Mako robotics. Every aspect of my experience was outstanding: Staff, facilities, surgery, and recovery (orthopaedic surgery, anaesthesiology, radiology, phlebotomy, medicine, physical therapy, nursing, laboratory, admitting, administrative support, kitchen, services, and more).

"I was an ardent yoga practitioner for many years and avid hiker until black ice brought me down. Not in an ashram or on a mountain but right on Fifth Avenue and 13th St. I realized what had happened -- a broken kneecap -- and that I couldn’t get up. I once thought I would never cross the street without crutches again, but now I’m back on the mountain!"

"Dr. Darren Lebl is an amazing and talented surgeon. I was a runner and a few years ago started getting these awful headaches and neck aches. I was always told, either I had a sinus infection or was under too much stress. They'd pass but not after taking Aleve and not running for a few days. I'd run through the discomfort and pain as much as possible. Back in September of 2013 I had an awful headache, by far the worst I had experienced."

"Since my total hip replacement I have gone skiing, played ice hockey, surfed, and I just returned from a hiking and fishing expedition in Olympic Park. None of these activities had been possible prior to my surgery, but now I enjoy them all with absolutely no pain."

" I drove from Philly to NYC to see Dr Kelly in Oct. of 2008, and I knew from the minute that I met him that he was going to change my life. Dr. Kelly repaired my right hip in 2008 and my left hip in 2012. I choose not to run marathons anymore, but I mountain bike, hike, play volleyball, surf, ski and snowboard with no pain at all. I am thankful everyday that I met Dr. Kelly and his team!!!"
