Hip Replacement

Hip Replacement

Susan Brown

I’ve spent many years doing a lot of physical activity. For the past 12 years I’ve been a personal trainer and have taught fitness classes. I love exercising and teaching classes, so I think my hip pain resulted from not having a balance between exercising and letting my body rest.

I had a long history of bi-lateral hip pain, and my condition got so bad that I started experiencing pain in both hips walking, climbing stairs, and putting on my shoes and socks. In addition, the pain would occasionally keep me from sleeping. 

Terri Hunnicutt

As a former dancer, I knew my body had taken a lot of abuse over the years. I had countless injuries to my feet, ankles, and knees. But when I turned 45, it became my left hip. At first, it just was a dull pain that bothered me occasionally. By the time I turned 50, I could barely get out of bed.

My story begins in my early 50's when I began to have left hip pain. I sought conservative treatment that included physical therapy and injections. It did not take me long to realize the injections only helped for a short period of time.  After receiving my last injection, with absolutely no pain relief, I knew I had to seek a permanent solution.

Jane Cameron

Jane Cameron is a 46-year-old athlete with Down syndrome. I adopted Jane when she was 15 years old after my son, who also had Down syndrome, passed away.

Jane has been competing in Special Olympics ever since she was 6 years old. She started off just competing in swimming, where she became quite the little tadpole.

Geneva Davis

Through two hip replacement surgeries in a year, from beginning to end, I could not have dreamed of a better outcome.

I delayed my surgery for a year because I was fearful of a long drawn out recovery or dependence on anyone during the recovery period. After consulting with Dr. Jeffrey Davis, his clarity and sensitivity, prompted me to move forward.

But during my preoperative procedures I knew everything was going to be fine when Dr. Davis initiated prayer. Following the surgery he prayed again. His bedside manner was phenomenal!

Dr. David Moore is great orthopedic surgeon. I highly recommend him to anyone I knew who needs a hip replacement. I followed Dr. Moore from UAB to Andrews Sports Medicine.

I am now walking 3.8 to 4 miles per day, three days per week.

Jane Burgett

Dr. James A. Flanagan literally gave me my life back. In 2014, he replaced my right hip. In 2015, he gave me a new right knee. There is no way that I can praise this highly-skilled and caring surgeon enough.

If you are listening Dr. Flanagan, I love you and your staff, and although I hope I never need your services again, you will be the first one I call if and when I do. Please say hello to the ladies for me. I'm dancing again!! Thank you!

I love everything about teaching third grade at Ogletree Elementary in Auburn.

One day a student's parent was visiting my classroom and commented on my limp. I told him I was interviewing doctors for a hip replacement. He was a defensive coach for Auburn University football. He recommended Andrews Sports Medicine, so I made an appointment.

Dr. Davis did my surgery and I immediately knew that my life was changed. I am now able to enjoy my work without pain!
