Dick Vermeil on his Joint Replacement Surgery:

"My biggest regret is that I waited so long. I should have done it sooner."

Over 30 years have passed since one of the most distinguished coaches in NFL history walked the sidelines of Veterans Stadium each Sunday. His legacy has only grown since his departure. An impeccable work ethic, a burning passion to succeed, a positive attitude and a drive for perfection has made Coach Dick Vermeil one of the most beloved sports figures in Philadelphia history.

A couple years back, that same passion and determination worked against Coach Vermeil as he began to develop severe hip pain that prevented him living the active lifestyle he's accustomed to. With a hectic schedule that offered little downtime, Coach Vermeil attempted various methods to mask the pain. When the pain finally became too much for him to endure, the former coach knew where to turn to get back to doing the things he loved: the team at Penn Orthopaedics.
