Dr. Schultz on KVUE: Hip Procedure Enables Patient to Climb Mt. Kilimanjaro

The hip resurfacing procedure at Texas Orthopedics has not only enabled local pastor and Cedar Park resident John Short to resume his active lifestyle, it has improved his mobility so much, he set his sights on climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, the highest free-standing mountain in the world, in an effort to help stop human trafficking.

John Short and Dr. Randall Schultz were recently interviewed by KVUE news about the innovative procedure and the impact it's had on his life.

"Resurfacing means we are literally just putting a new surface on top of the ball which has lost its cartilage coating," Dr. Schultz explained to KVUE.

Short completed the climb to help raise funds and awareness about human trafficking.

"It's representative of a woman, a girl or young lady to actually climb out of her situation," said Short.
