Winston's story—Total joint arthroplasty

For nearly 10 years, Winston had struggled with hip problems until he went to Chippenham and saw Dr. Miles Birmingham, orthopedic surgeon. Dr. Birmingham saw that Winston had degenerative changes in his hips, so he performed direct anterior bilateral arthroplasty on Winston's right and left hips—during two surgeries scheduled just three months apart.
