Celebrated dancer Wayne Sleep – ‘I needed a hip replacement….
I choose having surgery and ‘The following day I was up on crutches. It was extraordinary – the pain from my back, groin and knee had also disappeared as soon as I’d had the operation. It was like a miracle.’
…Miss Muirhead-Allwood, who is consultant orthopedic surgeon and hip specialist at Princess Grace and founder of The London Hip Unit, explains why she gave Wayne a total hip replacement with a ceramic implant rather than carry out hip resurfacing, in which the ball of the femur is resurfaced rather than the entire head of the femur being replaced.
