Johnny Bench underwent total hip replacement of his right hip in April of 2004 after suffering for years from chronic joint pain. He discussed his options with his surgeon and received a Stryker hip implant.
After undergoing the procedure, Bench was able to realize his lifestyle recovery goals and get back to his active life without hip pain. Since then, he has shared his joint replacement experience with attendees at Stryker educational seminars throughout the United States.
When Bench began experiencing pain in his left hip, he knew not to wait until he was sidelined by the pain before seeking help and underwent a total hip replacement of his left hip in February 2010.
Bench was the first patient to receive Stryker’s Mobile Bearing Hip. Its unique anatomic design and technology offers active patients like Bench increased stability, range of motion and longevity.
