Local farrier Peter Drake has been shoeing horses at farms around South Carolina for nearly 40 years. He prides himself on taking care of horses’ feet and legs to keep them healthy. But, for the last eight or nine years his hips were deteriorating and the pain made it difficult for him to walk. Peter’s hips were in a locked position from a condition called osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis.

MUSC Health orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Jake Drew recommended a minimally invasive procedure to get Peter back to his active life with less discomfort.
