HOI and Dr. Philip Glassner in Empowering Health Magazine

Ernie DiFazio could see the writing on the wall. The severe pain in his hips and legs that forced him to use a cane, and then a walker, would soon put him in a wheelchair if he didn’t do something about it. He went to see Philip Glassner, MD, an Orthopedic Surgeon at Hunterdon Medical Center (HMC).

“Dr. Glassner was very upfront with me, which I appreciated,” says Ernie. “He told me my hip joints were badly damaged by arthritis and that hip replacement could help. He explained the process, but left the decision completely up to me. I told him right then and there that I wanted to go ahead with it.”
