Dr. Zwahlen, this is a fan letter. We never heard tell of a surgeon who advises against surgery, till we met you, that is. Seriously, we were both impressed with your cautious approach to Nathan’s “bone on bone” hip condition; recommending Celebrex instead of hip replacement. From the first pill, he has been completely pain free, still walking 2 miles several days a week now and minus the aches when lying in bed. Piggybacking on his success, I was prescribed Celebrex by my primary doctor and the drug works for me too. Thanks for caring, conservative approach.
