Dr. Appell Offers Anterior Hip Replacement Surgery 

Many people who suffer from arthritis, hip pain, stiffness and limited hip movement can now choose a minimally invasive surgery when your doctor recommends a hip replacement in your treatment plan. One of the least invasive surgical options is Anterior Hip Replacement. The Anterior Approach is a proven technique that minimizes pain and the recovery period, offers a smaller incision, shortens your hospital stay and allows you to return to normal activities faster. We are pleased to say we are one of few orthopedic practices in Alabama that offer this surgical procedure. Dr. Scott Appell is currently the only physician in our practice to perform this type of surgery and is in the top 5 percentile for this program. If you are interested in seeing if you are a candidate for this surgery, please contact us to schedule your initial appointment today. 

Athletes: We Want Your Photos!

Are you a high school athlete or a parent of an athlete who has been patient of one of our physicians? We want 8"x10" action/team shots of athletes playing sports to hang in our clinics. Signed photos are even better! Email your photos to or call 205.329.7528 for questions. We look forward to seeing all the great pics! (Please be sure to include the athlete's first and last name, position, school, and which physician has treated him or her.)
