It has been 16 months since my hip replacement (Birmingham Hip) and I wanted to appraise you of my progress. I can’t tell you how pleased I am. I feel as if I am 20 years old again. I have played racquetball, tennis, and even basketball with no ill effects. It seems that even my other hip is better now because of my new hip. I just wanted to thank you and your staff for an outstanding job. And please use this letter as a recommendation to any of your patients that are considering the procedure. It is the best decision I could have made. God bless you all!
