When golfer David Woo first felt the pain in his hip, he figured he had just overexerted himself.
David Woo was active in his younger years, playing a lot of sports. When his hip pain became unbearable, he called the doctor who had helped him with a previous injury.
After a series of tests, Andrew Brooks, MD, of NorthBay Health knew David wouldn’t benefit from arthroscopic surgery and recommended a total hip replacement. Today, David is comfortable playing golf again.
