Carol Bauer has been a runner all her life. In 2019, her hip began acting up and holding her back from her passion, so she reached out to a friend and found Dr. Richard Berger. Upon first meeting, she “loved” him, and he replaced her hip on May 1, 2019. Since then, Carol has done a half-marathon, a half-Ironman, and an intense CrossFit competition. She is also back to coaching her high school track team, arguably her biggest passion. She believes running with the kids she coaches is the best way to bond with them, and she’s now able to do that again without any pain in her hip after her surgery with Dr. Berger.
