Having osteoarthritis in my family history, I was prepared when I was told I needed a total hip replacement. My pain over the years had become unbearable. My active daily routine and exercise regimen became very difficult and painful. After a labral repair in 2016 on my right hip did not resolve the pain I sought out the best hip replacement surgeon in New York and found him, Dr. David Mayman. In early Fall of 2017, my husband and I met with Dr. Mayman and he explained every detail of the surgery, from the history of hip replacement, the product that would be used during the procedure and the recovery details. He was so kind and thorough I immediately knew this was who I would trust to perform my surgery. October 2017 I had a successful THR on my right hip. In February 2018 I was back to golfing, exercising and I began taking yoga classes regularly. In Fall 2018, I became a 200 hour certified Yoga Instructor! I am now teaching yoga, and am back to hiking, dancing, and golfing pain-free. I am so grateful for the HSS team and Dr. Mayman. Thanks for getting me Back in the Game!!
