I went to Dr. McLaughlin because of his excellent reputation...and I went back because I was so satisfied with the results."

At the Kennedy Center at Mercy in Oshkosh, WI, Dr. Jeffrey McLaughlin has performed more than 15,000 hip and knee replacements on patients as young as 30 and as old as 92. He’s conducted long term studies on the results of hip replacements in morbidly obese patients with outstanding results. The titanium hip replacements used at the Kennedy Center have never been recalled. In fact, the Taperloc hip is designed to last a lifetime—no matter what the patient’s age.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re an active 30 something, a baby boomer or older adult—you could be a good candidate for joint replacement surgery or other orthopedic surgery.

Today there are 76 million baby boomers, many who want to stay active and are “rejecting the sedentary lifestyle of their parents’ generation,” according to a recent Medical Xpress article. It goes on to say that “the 45-64 age group accounted for more than 40% of the more than 906,000 total knee or total hip replacement surgeries in 2009, the last year for which figures were available.”

Dr. McLaughlin’s patients attest to his successful completion of various surgeries.

When 58 year old Gail Reiber’s doctor told her she should wait years for hip replacement surgery, she chose to visit Dr. McLaughlin at the Kennedy Center. Gail says, “I wanted to be active now, not 20 years from now.” After her surgery, Gail was back caring for her 5-acre show garden. In fact, she was so thrilled with the results that she went back to Dr. McLaughlin this year to have her other hip replaced: “I’m planning a camping trip with friends, and I’m so excited. This will be the first time in years that I won’t be limping around in pain.”

For Scott Nuutinen, 39, the choice was hip resurfacing surgery with Dr. McLaughlin. “When Scott came to see me,” explains Dr. McLaughlin, “he had been in pain for years but knew he wanted to get back to mountain biking, water skiing and downhill skiing. After talking with Scott, I believed he was a good candidate for hip resurfacing surgery. It would allow him to still be active at this point in his life.” Hip resurfacing surgery is a partial hip replacement that spares much of the hip bone so that in the future, if Scott needed it, he would still have the option of a total hip replacement.

Dennis Hawk is very familiar with the doctors, including Dr. McLaughlin, at the Kennedy Center. He’s had a hip replacement and two arthroscopic knee surgeries done there. Today at 72, Dennis continues to practice and teach yoga: “I went to Dr. McLaughlin because of his excellent reputation,” Dennis says, “and I went back because I was so satisfied with the results. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.”
