UOS Patient Stories

Pat - Bilateral hip replacement surgery

Dr. Michael Eilerman

Thanks to my care at UOS, I am successfully recovering from a surgery that I had been dreading for years. And I am so thankful that I found Dr. Michael Eilerman! Six weeks ago he replaced both of my hips using an anterior approach that he finds less invasive and leads to a quicker recovery time than standard approaches. I can only speak from my experience, but at six weeks out I have been released from care and am doing great; and I'm very happy that I elected to have both hips replaced in one operation. I am virtually pain free and do just about anything I want to do, within reason. And all this with no physical therapy! (Perhaps I should add that I am age 74.) I would encourage anyone who needs hip replacement surgery to talk to Dr. Eilerman before deciding on a surgeon. In my opinion, he's the best Knoxville has to offer!
