When Jill walked into University Orthopedics‘ East Bay Surgery Center, her hip pain was so bad, she had to use crutches. When she walked out just hours later, that pain was gone after undergoing same-day hip replacement with orthopedic surgeon Eric Cohen, MD.
Jill was gracious enough to let us document her same-day joint replacement journey. Here’s her surgery timeline.
