MEET TONY AND HIS TEAM
With 1,400 children depending on him for world-class gymnastics instruction, Tony Retrosi was shocked when, at age 44, he learned from orthopedic surgeon, Moby Parsons, MD that he had osteoarthritis in his hip joint and would need a total hip replacement. As owner of Atlantic Gymnastics in Portsmouth, being able to deliver quality coaching to his students means being hands-on and having full mobility. Tony chose the Joint Replacement Team at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital. Nine days after surgery, he was back in the gym doing handstands. Tony‘s return to the physical demands of coaching is 100% and pain-free. “I have no limitations,” says Tony. “I’m actually better than I was before.”
