Has anyone had the bilateral hip replacement at Mayo? I was born with congenital hip sockets and operated on at the age of 3 (1952) I am now 64 and have been more handicapped as the years go by. I have an appointment in June for a consultation with a surgeon and then hopefully, I can have the surgery in October. Any information would be helpful. George

Hi @geo49e. Here are some patient stories that may provide some insight on hip replacement surgery at Mayo Clinic: http://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/hip-replacement-surgery/care-at-mayo-clinic/patient-stories/prc-20019151. Hopefully this helps.

I haven't had hip problems but have other stuff. I wish you the very best
surgery and recovery. I hope you have a surgeon that you like. Best of luck!
