Hip - Labral Tear


  
Chris Scarella

A week after completing a Half-Ironman in September of 2015, I noticed a significant pain and locking sensation in my hip when jogging. Being that this was a feeling I had never experienced, I decided to see an Orthopedist at Columbia Doctors. As I anticipated, Columbia was receptive to my concerns and set me up with the highly recommended Hip Specialist, Dr. Lynch.

On the day of my examination, he immediately recognized the kind of injury I had suffered and put forth a practical plan to get me back to the physical activities I love to do. I had a labral tear in my hip and though surgery was eventually something I had to do, Dr. Lynch gave me peace of mind that I would make a full recovery.

Dr. Lynch and his team were more than supportive throughout this entire process and I am very lucky to have had them by my side through the many stages of recovery. Today, my hip feels better than ever, I am training for various races, and I couldn’t be happier!
