Why I chose a hip resurfacing video by Dave Published on May 8, 2018
Andy Murray will return to action on 11 June at a low-level grass tournament in the Netherlands…
…His return ends months of agonising over his future. He was due to come back in Brisbane, before the Australian Open, but withdrew at the last minute and headed for Melbourne, where his trusted friend and renowned surgeon, John O’Donnell, performed the hip resurfacing operation, where a small sleeve is placed over the joint.
Four days after the operation, Murray was walking freely in the streets of Melbourne when he bumped into members of the British media. There was a brief exchange of pleasantries and the player who has come through many crises might have wondered if he would ever again have good news to relate.… Read the rest
In 2015 it had become quite apparent that I would need hip replacement or hip resurfacing on my right hip. I had been training in karate for 44 years and lifting weights/bodybuilding for 42 years…
…Meeting Dr. Boettner at his Manhattan office was all I needed to make up my mind as to how to proceed…
…So it was decided that he would perform the surgery on March 26, 2016. Today is March 24th, 2017 as I wanted to be able to fully evaluate my condition after one year…
…Today, I am happy to report, that I am training pretty hard at the school, dramatically increased my stability, and I’m even sparring with my black belts. For you runners out there, I’m able to run, and even do wind sprints, with no pain.… Read the rest
I first met with Dr. Nawabi in July 2016 following an MRI that indicated I had a severely torn left hip labrum…
…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 procedure would make that possible…
…Fast forward to my surgery on December 21, 2016. Every element of the experience at HSS from the pre-surgery consult, to the pre-surgery prep, to the surgery itself, to the 36 hour recovery period at HSS was fantastic. ..
…I started running again in early September, and playing soccer in October. My cardio was solid due to the spinning classes, however I’m still getting my ball skills/agility back since I essentially went 18 months without … 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 had the past few years. My old surgeon had one person that required a revision, and that was it. And that’s been the past 12 years.… 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 two femoral heads are large and flat on one side vs bing round. Space narrowing, a few spurs, some bone on bone, etc… Right is worse than the left. It all makes sense as my whole life – specifically when i was a teen and and early twenties playing elite level hockey (signed NHL contract) – I always had groin and hip flexor problems. Perhaps it was due to my hip shape rather than muscles etc…
I have stopped the … 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 if I use the foam roller a couple of times a week it really helps with that.
My local physio got me using a kettlebell but for only one of the exercises -the basic kettlebell swing. He coached my technique and this really helped my hip function with both strength and range of motion.
Well, that’s about it. Five great years so far. … Read the rest

The same surgeon who resurfaced my left hip 7 years ago, David Mayman at Hospital for Special Surgery in NYC, replaced my right hip 7 weeks ago.
I have not had a single issue with my hip since David Mayman resurfaced it. The only reminder I have is the metal detector at airports… Read the rest

May 4th 2009 I had my left hip done in Honolulu buy Dr. Mori. I was back at work in 14 days and have been blessed with a smooth recovery. I feel so good I have to restrain myself from overdoing activities I think I could do. The right hip is scheduled for late August.

I’m 158 days post left hip and 46 post right hip now and I couldn’t be happier. Right hip went very well–two less days in the hospital (3) and no blood transfusions. I couldn’t wait to get out and one crutch around till the 50% weight bearing restriction was lifted. I attribute the better recovery to Arthrotec which facilitated bicycle riding and swimming prior to the second surgery. When I went off the Arthrotec 10 days prior to surgery the right hip pain made it unmistakably clear that the … Read the rest
September 5, 2017 – Checking in – August 24th was my 7th anniversary of my first HR, with November 26th coming up as my 7th for my second.
Feeling great, can do anything I want to do on it and have gotten back to all of my activities with a vengeance.
To all current new hippies, keep going and follow your surgeon’s instructions – pretty soon you won’t even notice you’ve got a new hip.
To those considering the surgery, it is major surgery and as such needs to be thought about well, but from my perspective, it is the best decision I ever made. There is an alternative to living in pain.
To more experienced hippies – congrats and I hope all turned out well. All of you inspired me in one way or another.… 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.
Published on Sep 20, 2012 – I hope this gives those of you who are considering a Birmingham Hip Resurfacing some confidence to get the procedure done. I wish I had gotten it done a year earlier, because it made me totally born again hard! I remodel kitchens for a living. Before the surgery, I was basically done working at 2 p.m. because the Lortab would wear off and the pain would get debilitating. I didn’t want to take more than one Lortab per day because of … Read the rest
