  • Right Hip Resurfacing
Jon Harrison's photo

“I suffered for three years with horrible right hip pain, had a right hip resurface 1/03/2011 left the hospital two days later walking with a walker for one day. I then used a cane for three days walking 2 miles finally in April worked up to 35 to 50 miles a week. I advised DR Pritchett I had run over 80,000 miles in my life, although 61 still wanted to run. He had me wait until labor day since then I run 3 miles EOD with no pain. I was advised in Tacoma to have a full hip and never run again, thanks Dr Pritchett for giving me my life back the way I want to live it! I am pictured in Salzburg Austria enjoying a PAIN FREE vacation. A little beer but no Advil since February!”

“Dr. Pritchett: I wanted to let you know that I won a professional golf tournament just seven months after your resurfaced my shoulder. I had been told by several other surgeons that my career was over. I can't thank you enough. I am playing better than ever.”

Andy P

  • Revision of ASR Hip Resurfacing
Andy P's photo

“I had both my hips resurfaced with the Depuy ASR. When my hip implants were recalled the only option I was offered was removal of my entire resurfacing implants and placement of complete total hip replacements. I am so glad I did not do that and I found you instead. You were able to revise my recalled ASR hip socket on my left hip to a new polyethylene socket. I had a very easy recovery and I was able to keep all my bone and my existing resurfacing femur. I can do anything I want now including all my sports. You were the only one that had any experience with my problem and I am grateful for your creativity. I am coming back for my right side in a few months.”

  • Ceramic Hip Resurfacing

“I was extremely frustrated because I could not find a surgeon to help me with my crippling arthritis and strong metal allergies. I was told by everyone else I saw that my only option was a total hip replacement. I was afraid. I was offered a plastic socket and ceramic ball. I would still have a metal stem in my femur and there would be metal backing of my socket. You placed ceramic coated resurfacing implants with a cross linked polyethylene socket liner. I have no pain and no worries. I can do anything I want. Thanks for everyting Dr. Pritchett you were my last hope!”


  • Hip Resurfacing

“For the first time in my life I can walk, run and move normally. I was able to have children and now can keep up with them in all their sports and activities. Because of child bearing I was advised not have a metal on metal hip resurfacing but Dr. Pritchett found a way to give me a ceramic on polyethylene hip resurfacing. I had a limp all my life but now its gone along with the pain. My life is normal in every way. Thank you ”

“Thanks for the left thumb implant. This works many times better than the tendon they used on my right thumb. I have much better strength on my left side and I have the power to do anything I want now. I wish I had two of the thumbs implants.”
