November 15, 2016 – Wow, does time fly when you’re having fun. I had my bilateral surgery with Dr Scott Marwin on 11/15/11. Being bilateral, I was able to stay at NYU Langone for nine days total having PT three times a day. On the ninth day I surprised my wife by walking out of the hospital using just one cane. I was able to … Read the rest
Update: October 6, 2016 : My retirement has been awesome thanks to these hips. If it wasn’t for HR, I’d be sitting, probably in a wheelchair, watching TV all day. Instead my wife and I travel all over, mostly to short distance triathlons. Hawaii, California, Florida, South Carolina, lots of local races. We are having a ball. This long run/hike was way out of my … Read the rest
This passed Saturday ( 9/27/2016), I ran the Berkeley Trail Half-Marathon in California. It was brutal, it was beautiful. 5800 ft of climbing and descending. The pounding on the downhills left my whole body very sore, but mostly in my quads. My glutes were worn out after. Even my biceps were killing me. My left side has always been a little weaker than my right … Read the rest

I had my right hip resurfaced in January 2003, during the original FDA clinical trial. I was 45, an athlete all of my life, and searching for an alternative to thr. I stumbled onto resurfacing doing my own research, and to make a long story short, flew to Columbia, sc(of all places!) to have the surgery performed by Dr. Gross. I think I was maybe his 200th … Read the rest

When I had my first done with Dr. Gross nearly 13 years ago, there were no options in the NYC area, where I live. In fact, there were very few surgeons doing the procedure in this country. I was part of the original FDA clinical trials, and was one of the first few hundred people to have resurfacing in the USA. My judgment at the time was … Read the rest

I had my right hip resurfaced by Dr Scott Marwin at NYU/HJD. Home the next day, and five weeks out I am now beginning to feel MUCH better. Still somewhat stiff and sore, but I am walking and biking, played golf (walk, no ride) last Saturday, and doing PT 3x a week, and my limp is going away. Dr Marwin tells me to do what i want … Read the rest
Bill’s Hip Resurfacing with Dr. Marwin 2015
Thank you for all of the info you post on your site. I read the updates fairly regularly, and it is a great wealth of knowledge.
I am now just past the 5 week mark on my right hip resurfacing, and I am starting to feel more like myself. Outside of sleep, everything is coming together. Sleep is still an issue, as I … Read the rest

Dr. Scott Marwin did my right hip when I was 62 on 4/28/2009, 2 days before my 63rd birthday and my left hip at 64 on 9/9/2011 – both are BHRs; both done at NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases.
In both cases I was back to work, commuting to Manhattan on the LIRR, with no assistance, in less than 4 weeks. No complications.

My name is Freddy Sammarone. I am 44. This was my first resurfacing (left side) by Dr. Scott Marwin. My right hip was done in 2008 by Dr. Ranawat. So I have two types of hips.
I felt compelled to post a little something on your website. Jan 8, 2013 I had a hip resurfacing done by Dr. Scott Marwin. Today is 3 weeks post op and … Read the rest
