"I had my first hip replacement in 2005. I spent a week in the hospital and another week in a rehab facility. When I needed the other hip replaced, I called FMI and met with Dr. Ollivierre. He told me about anterior hip replacement and how it involves a lot less recovery time. After this hip replacement, I was home in four days and bounced back three times faster. Now I can tend to my orchid garden without a walker and without pain. I'm back 100 percent!"
Diane Washburn - Hip Replacement
"Anterior approach is a genuine breakthrough in hip replacement surgery. It requires far less hospital and recovery time. And, like Diane, most people needing hip surgery are eligible."
