Where Do You Want to Be? Tony's Story

Where Do You Want to Be? Tony's Story

"My hip was so painful that it changed my personality. Now I am happy to be pain free, working and smiling again!"  Tony Zgraggen, New Glarus, WI

For Tony the hip pain had become constant. Over time the cheese store work he had always loved became a painful chore. Finally, when pain stole his desire to break into a spontaneous yodel, Tony knew it was time to connect with Monroe Clinic’s Ortho team.

A little over a week after his hip replacement surgery, Tony was walking a couple of miles daily. In two weeks, he was back at the cheese store—yodeling, working and enjoying his everyday life with gusto.
