It wasn’t until he talked with Dr. Amar Mutnal, an affiliated surgeon of St. Vincent Charity Medical Center’s Spine and Orthopedic Institute, that he knew he was ready to take the leap to hip replacement. Michael chose Dr. Mutnal because of his specialized approach to total hip replacement surgery. Dr. Mutnal combines the latest in surgical techniques and technology – a minimally invasive anterior approach, digital templating technology and intra-operative x-ray. [More]
