They said his
career was over.
Instead, his life’s purpose
After 20 years of being a marine, Gunnery Sgt. David Kirscht
developed osteoarthritis in his hip. It was so severe, he was
told it would end his career.
The highly specialized team at NHRMC Orthopedic Hospital
used their advanced expertise to replace David’s hip, and he
was cleared for duty.
This marine didn’t just get a new hip. He got back what
matters most to him: the ability to serve his country.
