Dr. David Mayman completed my hip replacement in October 2016. I was living in pain for three years and I wanted to do all of my favorite sports again with no more pain. The surgery was a success and I returned to the road bike first, then some hiking, and most importantly the snowboard!! I got a new board to match up with this great new hip, To me it's not a fake hip at all but a new hip that works great! I hit three mountains and went 10 times in the past 3 months, I hit all the black diamonds and the back county glades, this is the best riding of my life for sure!!
If you're in pain, don't wait, get it done and get back in the game again! I did! :-)
