Hal Sutton Becomes Spokesperson for Stryker Orthopaedics
Date:6/25/2013

MAHWAH, N.J., June 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Stryker Corporation's Orthopaedics Division today announced that Hal Sutton, professional golfer and PGA Tour Champion (1983), has become a spokesperson for the company and will help educate consumers about hip replacement surgery.  A 32-year veteran of the sport and current member of the Champions Tour, Sutton underwent a total hip replacement and received Stryker's Mobile Bearing Hip in October 2012.

For several years, Sutton had been suffering from hip pain, but like many others was hesitant to have surgery. In 2012, at age 54, after speaking with his doctor and learning about the differences in hip replacements, Sutton made the decision to undergo hip replacement.   

"When I was ready to return to golf after putting my career on hold to spend time with my family, I realized my hip wouldn't let me," said Sutton. "I had developed osteoarthritis in my left hip that was causing significant pain. I was starting to question if I'd ever get back to a competitive level again until I talked to my doctor and he indicated that I was a candidate for total hip replacement."

As a spokesperson for the company, Sutton will help educate current and prospective hip replacement patients around the country, discussing his experiences with osteoarthritis, hip replacement, and the recovery process. 

"My Stryker hip has allowed me not only to return to my career, but also to be able to do things we take for granted every day. Simply getting in and out of a car and putting on my shoes became challenging for me and as a result, life became depressing," said Sutton. "I hope that my story will show the millions of Americans suffering from hip pain that replacement surgery can allow them to return to their lifestyles."
