(WIAT)- A Spanish actress chose Birmingham to have her hip replacement procedure done. Last month, May Heatherly decided to do something she’d avoided for several years…getting a hip replacement. She heard about an innovative way the doctors at Princeton Baptist Medical Center was performing the surgery that would allow her to recover faster.
Dr. Theodis Buggs recently performed the operation on Heatherly. He says instead of the traditional way of cutting the muscle, he cuts interiorly in between the muscle which calls for a smaller incision, less pain, and a fast recovery time. He says a lot of patients are back up and going after just one day…the recovery time of the traditional surgery could take several months.
Heatherly is very happy and active again. She plans to spend the next few weeks visiting her sister in Birmingham before heading back to her home in Spain.
