Steve Wozniak’s anterior hip replacement journey
Dr. Mast recently had the opportunity to catch up with the legendary Steve Wozniak when he interviewed him about his first-hand experience of hip replacement, in his capacity as Vice President of the Anterior Hip Foundation during the organization’s event in Las Vegas. Steve also gave us a glimpse into why he has a reputation as a bit of a joker.
“We have a home in Colorado that we’re going to move to. When my right hip goes someday… I’ll probably want to fly back to the tried and trusted doctor I had before…”
Steve shares how the hip pain that was causing him to limp was making his already grueling travel schedule increasingly challenging. Having to carry a heavy bag through countless airports meant that he had started resorting to using a wheelchair.
However, following a personal recommendation, he came to us for a consultation and subsequently had an anterior hip replacement. In this video, he shares details of his experience with the Hip & Pelvis Institute, his surgery, and rapid recovery. He also shares insights into his wife’s treatment as we also took care of her hips in a simultaneous bilateral hip replacement.
