I am the ex jockey and cutter/reined cowhorse rider that has a right hip resurfaced with Dr Sparling in Vancouver, WA (Wright C+) 7 years ago at age 45 (petite female). I am still doing great, no complications and can pretty much do whatever I want pain free. I don’t even think about my hip anymore.
Just wanted to update. I feel very fortunate and grateful to our modern medicine and your help to educate and inform.
