Sean Berg Story:

After a slip and fall several months ago, I suffered a hip labral tear. Over the following weeks, I was in excruciating pain. I could not run, lift weights, drive, tie my shoes, or even cross my legs during this time. With my 6’11’’ height, simple movements like getting in and out of a car became grueling. As a former Division I lacrosse player, physical activity has always been a part of who I am, so this injury was very demoralizing. 

Fortunately, I had heard that American Hip Institute has the best hip surgery team in the world. When I came in for my first visit, I was immediately impressed by the quality of care, as every team member was an expert in his or her role. I had an amazing experience with the entire staff, from the clinical team to the surgery schedulers. Even the little things were always taken care of; I could not help but notice how clean and well-maintained the facility is. 

To me, the most salient attribute of American Hip Institute is their impressive implementation of cutting-edge technology. In the OR, I was comfortable knowing that my surgery would be performed by an experienced team well-trained in using the most up-to-date equipment and procedures. In the clinic, the use of modern technology at every step streamlined and enhanced my patient experience.

After my surgery, I experienced immediate pain relief, and I have been able to gradually return to my day-to-day activities. The team has done an excellent job guiding me through the recovery process, and I am excited to resume working out soon. Overall, I am extremely satisfied with the care I have received at American Hip Institute.
