"My right hip was replaced by Dr. Sculco, MD in June of 2003, at HSS. Prior to my hip replacement, I had difficulty walking. I walked with a limp. After the surgery, I went straight home. I never went to a rehab. I did rehab. at home. Now I walk without a limp, and have no pain. My right leg was 11/2 inch shorter than the left leg. Dr. Sculco, MD has lengthened my right leg by 11/2 inch. Now I walk without a limp, and have no pain whatsoever."
