The Lucas Rockwood Show

There are over 400,000 hip replacement operations performed each year in the USA alone. While our modern healthcare systems struggle to produce positive outcomes in some areas, in others - joint replacements in particular - the progress is remarkable. A hip replacement used to be a last ditch effort to live pain-free, whereas today, people are regaining active lives earlier and success rates improve with each passing year. If you, or someone you love, is struggling with an arthritic hip and considering options, this week’s podcast is for you.

Listen and learn:

  • What the 20 year outlook is for a replaced joint and what happens after that
  • Why you should say no to running post-op, and yes to yoga, skiing and tennis
  • What you need to know about femoral acetabular syndrome (FAI), labrum tears, and arthritis
  • Why obesity is a major contributor to hip pain and sadly a common disqualifier for hip replacement surgery
