I had horrible pain from my hip, to my knees, to my toes that was truly affecting my life. After seeing many other doctors, I was referred to Dr. Miranda who immediately identified that I needed a hip replacement. Being fourty eight years old, it seemed like I was too young for this procedure and I was, of course, very hesitant. It turned out to be one of the best experiences of my life. I elected the anterior approach. With a strong determination and being faithful with physical therapy, I was back to normal, pain free living in two to three weeks. It is wonderful to be myself again and to have that pain to be GONE! I am back to my active lifestyle! I credit the expertise of Dr. Miranda and his staff for being professional and very knowledgeable from start to finish. If you were ever considering this procedure, I highly recommend you trust Dr. Miranda and his staff. There is no better and you will thank me later.
