Early one morning, Elaine got up from bed and had difficulty walking. Her doctor prescribed a walker and recommended a double hip replacement. At 77 years young, Elaine underwent minimally invasive hip replacement surgery at Sharp Grossmont Hospital and had her second hip replaced six months later.
Today, Elaine is back to her normal activities, which include gardening and attending her grandchildren’s little league games as often as she can. “My doctors were great and I am fortunate to have had my surgery at Sharp Grossmont.”
