I am Playing Golf Again
Thomas Curran has Anterior Approach Hip Surgery
Thomas Curran is a recent retiree who enjoys playing golf. His family is very active and when it came to his retirement he was excited to start playing golf with his family and friends more often. While playing golf with his son, his son noticed that he did not turn his hips when he swung the golf club.
After informing him that he had difficulty with that motion, his son told him, “you need to get that checked out”. He went to his primary care physician who took x-rays and informed him that he needed to go see an orthopaedic surgeon. He selected Resurgens Orthopaedics and Dr. Robert Yarbrough. Thomas knew that moving forward with his life meant possibly having a surgery in order to do so. He went to visit with Dr. Yarbrough and the doctor diagnosed him with arthritis of the hip.
“Mission Accomplished, Doc! Thank you for getting me active again.”
After being urged by his wife to get the surgery done, he called and set up the appointment. Dr. Yarbrough and his staff were very understanding and professional. Three months after surgery and he was exercising 3 times a week to keep active. His range of motion continues to improve and he is very pleased with his experience. At Thomas’ last visit with Dr. Yarbrough, he told him, “Mission Accomplished, Doc! Thank you for getting me active again.”
Dr. Robert Yarbrough graduated from Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta and completed his Residency at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. His areas of expertise are Knee and Hip Total Joint Replacement and knee and hip surgery. Dr. Yarbrough is Board Certified through the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery.
