About 15% or so end up with this Nerve Damage from the Anterior Hip Replacement, yours truly is one of them... I wrote a pretty strong Yelp review about my surgeon, is it his fault or just the CHANCES we take with these surgeries. He came highly recommended and many gave him a 5Star review, myself and another woman talked about our horror outcomes....many more talked about his "lack of bedside manner"....I saw that immediately in him, but I don't need my hand held, just good work from this surgeon. www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000687.htmCachedSimilar Femoral nerve dysfunction is a loss of movement or sensation in parts of the legs due to ...
