I am 54 years old and have had pretty debilitating hip pain for the past 6 years. I was diagnosed with a labral tear and femeroacetabular impingement. I couldn’t walk or sit for long periods of time. I was on pain meds 24/7 and was miserable and depressed. Finally I made an appointment with Dr. Frank McCormick in the Signature Healthcare Orthopedics Department. He told me that he could perform a Hip Arthroscopy to repair the labral tear and impingement. On September 24th I had my surgery. The surgery went well and the staff at the hospital were great. I felt really good within a very short time.  I am going to PT to strengthen all of the muscles  in the hip and regain total function. All of the pre surgery pain I had is gone. Any pain that I have now is normal from the surgery and will resolve itself over time. I am so happy and excited I have my life back!  It is absolutely incredible.  If you have hip pain, call Dr. McCormick!
