Wayne Tipton

Movement has always been a major part of Wayne Tipton’s life. Following years of professional dancing and competing, Wayne continues to teach ballroom dance lessons in his retirement. It was while dancing competitively that he began to experience pain and problems with his hips, and his dropping scores reflected his discomfort. After being referred to Dr. DePaolo by his primary care physician, he had both of his hips replaced over the course of two surgeries. Wayne describes working with Dr. DePaolo and his staff as wonderful, and that he recommends him to anyone in need of such services. Wayne especially appreciated Dr. DePaolo’s ability, and flexibility, to perform the first of his surgeries at Mission Hospital and the second at AdventHealth in response to what worked best for Wayne’s insurance at the time. Following his procedure, Wayne was finally able to sleep pain-free, and when it came to dancing, he once again began to win.
