At the age of 43, top fitness trainer Ashley Selman was an unlikely candidate for a total hip replacement. But after doing extensive research, she found the best course of treatment for her hip pain at UCSF.

Ashley Selman -- part drill sergeant, part cheerleader -- meets every grunt and bead of sweat in her training studio with encouragement.

"Good job!" she yelled. "Great form!"

Selman, whose successful career as a fitness trainer developed from her lifelong love of sports, was finishing up her last day at work before a scheduled hip replacement surgery at UC San Francisco.

Selman, 43, is an unlikely candidate for this type of procedure. But the former collegiate athlete's hip troubles go back almost 30 years, when she injured her right hip during a skiing accident as a teenager. She had learned to live with the discomfort, but eventually the pain began to interfere with everyday life.

"Basically my cartilage is worn down. I have multiple bone spurs," Selman said. "The bone shape has changed over time. And I have pain with pretty much every movement of my hip."
