Alan Marinelli: I was climbing stairs one day after hip replacement.

Alan Marinelli spent two years struggling with hip problems. "I had to give up going to the gym," he says. "In fact, I could hardly walk." An MRI showed serious joint damage and the need for full hip replacement. Alan's good health made him a candidate for Baylor Scott & White's rapid-discharge hip replacement that returned him home one day after surgery. Still, he never expected to be up and walking, pain-free, the same day as his procedure or climbing stairs the next day.
