…Upon meeting with Dr. Nawabi and having him review my MRI and X-rays, he concluded that I was a good candidate for hip resurfacing surgery. I was hoping to return 100% to running, playing soccer, and playing golf and the hip resurfacing … Read the rest

I had my left hip hip done in 2005 by Dr. Myron Stachniw in Galesburg, Il., and the left hip the following year. Aside from the occasional flare up of bursitis in my left hip, I have remained very active. My left hip is a resurf. The right hip is a large femoral ball hip replacement.
I have been baffled at all the bad press resurfs have … Read the rest
I am a 47 yr old extremely active male and former D1 college hockey player. For the last 3-4 years I have been suffering for hip flexor and groin pain. I just thought is was muscle/tendinitis pain from my deadliest, squats, running and skating. I visited a Orthopedic specialist about year ago for what i thought was a sports hernia. I was informed I had OA in both hips. My … Read the rest
December 4, 2017 – Fifth year still had some nice improvement (believe it or not).
This also marks my fifth season back playing soccer. Every season I’ve had little nags here and there (Achilles, hamstrings, calfs, etc) but the hip has been injury free. When my conditioning wanes a bit in off season I can get that “achy” feeling after an hour or so playing. But … Read the rest

It’s been almost three years and I never, ever give my hip a single thought. I can work really hard for 12 hours straight, play football with my boy, run at a full sprint, not to mention little things like touch my toes, put on my socks, and do personal hygiene on my toes and feet. It’s amazing what we take for granted.

This is a Thank You video. This is to Dr. Peter Callander for giving me back my passions, my inspiration and my drive. One year ago I couldn’t walk straight, sleep through the night, or ski without pain. On top of that I could barely walk my dog around the block.… Read the rest
