I am a clinical R.N. at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago.
Dr. Mitchell Sheinkop did bilateral hip resurfacings 2 months apart for me
this past July and Sept. I have rehabbed very well and expect to return to my
previous position this week. Much of the cartilage had worn away from my
femoral heads over the years especially due to being a martial artist and it
finally caught up with me even after trying numerous holistic therapies and
nutritional supplementation. The Dr. told me I was his first bilateral Pt.
and he had done 17 single resurfacings so far .I am very glad I had this
done as it has improved my quality of life immensely. Dr Sheinkop is a
teaching professor at Rush University and is well respected by his peers. My
surgical procedure was textbook perfect without complications. The Dr.
belongs to the Midwest Orthopedic Group who has other very renowned surgeons
such as Dr. R. Berger who has pioneered much of the MIS for hips and knee
replacements. I am a 62yr old – Caucasian male 6’2″ / 245lbs.
