Meet Mark T

After years of continuous wear and tear from running, Mark’s hips were causing him so much pain, he knew he needed to do something. Mark works for the Pittsburgh Penguins, so he asked their UPMC team doctors for advice. They sent him to Brian A. Klatt, MD, at UPMC Orthopaedic Care, who helped Mark make the decision to have both hips replaced at once. “I don’t even think about the fact that I have two artificial hips,” says Mark, “it’s been a life-changing experience.”
