Because of my orthopaedic care, I can walk straight with no pain and or embarrassment.

My name is Val Robinson and about two years ago I began experiencing sharp pains in my groin area and walking with a limp and tilt. The pain intensified as I began to workout thinking this would help. I found out I had laberal hip tears and repairing may or may not work and if so I would still eventually need hip replacement.

God did something supernatural I had bilateral hip replacement using the anterior procedure.  I walked out of the hospital 2 1/2 days, went back to work and driving in 2 1/2 weeks. Today I am back to my original height weeks post surgery back to the gym and pool. I thank God for my life and for securing my life through the hands and skills of Dr. Unger.


My treatment and recovery

Eight months post surgery, I am stronger, taller and walking 5-6 miles 5 days a week. My life has been restored and I am dancing again with confidence. Again, I thank God for using Dr. Anthony S. Unger, Washington Orthopaedic Sports Medicine to give me a new and improve life. Peace Val


It was easy and quick! I got up, start walking, two weeks of home therapy and 5 weeks of outpatient therapy. I started distance walking at 3 months post surgery 1.5 miles one step at a time and today I am walking 5-6 miles a day 5 days a week. I have not looked back an excited about the future.



Believe in the process, trust your surgeon, go into surgery as healthy and strong as possible, limit medication, wear the right shoe and walk.
