Rob Taylor is a recovering journalist who can't stop writing. In May, 2018, he got his right hip replaced with metal and plastic parts. Unable to find answers to many of his questions about preparation and recovery, he decided to write a book. The result is, Get Hip! How to prepare for and Recover from Hip Replacement, co-authored by his skillful surgeon, Wayne Moschetti. Rob wrote from the Wall Street Journal's Washington Bureau for nine years, and for four other newspapers and the occasional magazine. He also directed science and environmental journalism training programs in more than a dozen countries for the non-profit International Center for Journalists. He has worked as a volunteer emergency medical technician, manager of a horse farm, father of two and grandfather of two more. Having moved to New England, he spends free time biking, golfing, hiking the White and Green Mountains and planning jaunts to dreamed-of spots like Torres del Paine National Park, Chile (setting for the GetHip! cover photo). He's happy to be married to his first wife, Toni Egger, and to have Nervous Nell and Hyper Piper (border collies) to lead him back out into the woods. Dr. Wayne Moschetti graduated from the University of New Hampshire magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. After working in healthcare technology in New York City he obtained his MD from Boston University School of Medicine where he graduated magna cum laude. While completing his residency at Dartmouth-Hitchcock, he obtained a Master's of Science from The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice in Healthcare Leadership. After residency, he competed a one-year fellowship in Adult Reconstructive Surgery at the Brigham and Women's hospital in Boston, MA. He then took a position as an Assistant Professor of Orthopaedics through the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth. He is currently the Chief of Adult Joint Reconstructive Surgery at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center with an interest in primary knee and hip arthroplasty with an emphasis on the direct anterior approach, partial knee replacements, patient specific technology, revision hip and knee arthroplasty, innovative patient centered outcomes assessment, complex acetabular reconstruction, periprosthetic fracture management, periprosthetic infections, knee fusions, and general Orthopaedic trauma. He is happily married to his college sweetheart, Jessica, and has 3 beautiful children.
