“Today, I dance without restraint, free from the nagging feeling of discomfort, relishing every moment, and enjoying my passion to the fullest.”

Loretta teaches jazz dance at City Dance Studios in San Francisco. She takes classes, performs, as well as teaches as much as five days a week post-hip surgery.

“I had a referral from a long-time friend who is an orthopedic doctor who said: “If you are 80 years old it wouldn’t matter as much who you go to for the surgery, but if you want to continue all the sports that you enjoy, you need to go to someone who specializes in active patients.” That person turned out to be Dr. Nicholas H. Mast. With that endorsement, Rob booked a consult with Dr. Mast and soon after had the first hip replacement.

“Anyone who is questioning or nervous about getting a hip replacement, don’t spend any more of your life in pain or with limitations. There is so much life ahead of you. Thank you Dr. Mast”
