Dr. McLawhorn and his staff could not have made my total hip replacement surgery easier for me. I had actually dreaded the prospect of having this surgery, but am so pleased that I decided to go ahead with it. It has only been seven weeks since surgery, and already my physical quality of life is much improved. There was much less pain than I was expecting, and the pain was very well managed. Dr. McLawhorn lives up to his superb credentials, and it is no wonder that he is chosen by over 500 patients to perform hip and knee surgery annually. I highly recommend him and HSS.
