MAKOplasty Hip Replacement Success Story

Steve Conry

Steve Conry suffered for years from hip pain that was so severe it affected all aspects of his everyday life. The extensive damage in his hip robbed Steve of his independence and freedom – to the point that he considered early retirement on disability.

In 1996, Steve came to Medical City Dallas Hospital to undergo MAKOPlasty hip replacement surgery with orthopedic surgeon Charles Rutherford, MD. He was so pleased with the results that Steve chose to come back to Medical City and Dr. Rutherford when his other hip needed repair in 2015.

Since his hip replacement surgeries, Steve’s quality of life has drastically improved. The patient who once struggled to do simple tasks like walking has come back to win time trials in cycling.

“[MAKOPlasty hip replacement surgery] has been the best thing I ever did for myself,” Steve said. “It’s been a blessing for me and such a life-changing thing for me to do.” Steve adds, “I have Doctor Rutherford to thank for it.”
