    The patient is a 58-year-old man with a BMI of 30. He is muscular, with a prominent tensor muscle belly in the affected left hip. Dr. Masonis says the patient has close to a Dorr type A femur, and for that reason, he has templated for an anatomic cementless stem (MiniMAX; Medacta USA, Chicago, Illinois) that will proximally load the femur.
