Comments: I highly recommend Dr. Kris Alden and his staff if you are in need of a hip replacement. I am a very active 50 year old athlete. Dr. Alden understood my desire to return to an active lifestyle. Dr. Alden performs minimally invasive anterior hip replacement, which allows one to recover faster as less tissue is disturbed. The complete surgical process was seamless and pain free. I was off pain meds in one week. I was driving and back at work in 10 days. I was walking normally in 2 weeks.
