Total Hip Replacement: Crystal’s Story

In March 2013, Crystal Cox fell on the ice, tearing the cartilage in her right hip, which led to severe hip pain. Her pain eventually progressed to the point where she was unable to perform daily activities, severely impacting her quality of life.

As a mother of two active teenagers, Crystal knew she needed to seek orthopedic care and treatment to regain her mobility. So, she turned to Dr. Scott Wingerter, orthopedic surgeon at Dickson-Diveley Orthopaedics. Dr. Wingerter recommended total hip replacement surgery, an effective treatment option for patients with severe hip pain.

Now, Crystal says she is free from pain and back to the life she loves. Watch as Crystal describes her story in more detail:
