It’s been two weeks since Bonnie Parker had her hip replaced.
She is 50, petite, a tattoo artist. So she’s no stranger to pain, but says the past few years have been really tough.
“I watched my mother suffer from arthritis, and she sat down one day and never got back up. And I found myself sitting down more and more and not getting up, and I thought, ‘No, I can’t do this.’"
After non-surgical solutions failed to help, Parker spoke with her doctor, and decided to try a new robot-assisted procedure: something called MAKOplasty.
