I knew for a decade that I would one day need a hip replacement. That day came when I was in my early 60's. I was reluctant and miserable, in pain every day, and worst of all, living on anti-inflammatories as a solution. I did my research and found that I preferred anterior hip replacement - minimally invasive, faster recovery, less pain. Scheduling was a breeze. His office runs like a machine - considered appointments that fit my schedule, happy, easy-going staff, a long chat, and a smile from Dr. Johnson the 3-4 times I had to go to the UCLA office before and after surgery. The left hip surgery and recovery was so successful, I begged to have my right hip replaced precisely a year later. It may sound corny, but I can move around like a twenty-year-old again because of Dr. Johnson. Sure, I did the work I had to do in physical therapy, but I credit my well-being to Dr. Johnson.
