Story Summary

For the past decade, Madeleine Gehrke has been proving people wrong in the pool. She spent three years swimming for the University of Missouri, until the pain in her hips became unbearable.

Thanks to a new procedure, which involves an innovative surgical table, patients such as Gehrke can now avoid the painful complications that often accompany traditional arthroscopic hip surgeries.
