    Coach Calipari

    “You better come here and get an opinion”

    John Calipari is known for being one of the most active and animated coaches in basketball. But in 2014, Coach Cal was in excruciating pain. That’s how he knew it was time for his second hip replacement surgery—and he knew he wanted it to happen at UK HealthCare’s Orthopaedic Surgery & Sports Medicine. Thanks to their innovative approach, Coach Cal’s recovery was much quicker and less painful than his first hip replacement, and he was able to get moving again soon after surgery. Today, he’s back to his signature pacing up and down the court—pain-free and ready to lead the BBN.

    Coach Stoops

    Elite Care for All

    Coach Mark Stoops is known for being just about as active as his players on the field. He has struggled with pain in his knee since his college days. As the years went by, it started taking a toll on his life and his active career. In 2015, he made the decision to undergo knee replacement surgery at UK HealthCare’s Orthopaedic Surgery & Sports Medicine program, with Dr. Jeff Selby taking the lead on the surgery. After a six-week recovery process, Coach Stoops was finally pain-free for the first time in years. Today, he’s as active as ever, and grateful for the care he received at UK HealthCare. “I've led a much healthier life and been a lot better off since I've had the surgery done. The doctors and the surgeons, they are the real heroes over there.”.
