I am very pleased with my hip replacement. I was up and walking the first day. I walked about 50 yards the first day and about 100 yards the second day, both times while using a walker. By the 8th day I was walking freely without any assistance at all and with very little discomfort. I found Dr. Donohue to be knowledgeable, skilled and a very pleasant doctor to work with. I would highly recommend Dr. Donohue to anyone in need of a hip replacement.
