      Hi there,

      I am 31 years-old, have AMC, and can walk. Recently, I have been seeing an orthopaedic specialist for hip and knee pain on the right side. After a couple of tests and visits, he is suggesting a hip replacement. Have any of you had a similar situation? If so, how did you handle it, and what were the results?

      Also, does anyone know of an orthopaedic doctor in Indianapolis who specializes in working with patients with AMC? This would help me.

      Thanks,

      Kristen

        Hi Kristen, I am 53 and had a total left hip replacement in 1990. I had 2 surgeries as a child for severe dislocated hip. This was the best thing I ever did

          Hi Kristen,

          I am 53 and had a total left hip replacement in 1990. I had 2 surgeries as a child for severe dislocated hip. This was the best thing I ever did for myself, it really added to my mobility and completely got rid of my hip and sciatic pain. It was done by Dr. Goodman at Stanford Univ. Hospital.

          Best of luck to you,
          Kathleen
