New option available for hip surgery

Fri, Oct 13, 2017

Orthopedics & Sports Medicine BayCare Clinic offers an option for hip replacement surgery that takes weeks off your post-surgery recovery.


“Entering your hip through the front or anterior area results in less trauma to the soft issues around your hip, fostering a speedier recovery. It's a more challenging surgery, but it's been extremely beneficial to our patients,” says Dr. Craig Olson, an orthopedic surgeon with Orthopedics & Sports Medicine BayCare Clinic in Manitowoc.
