My name is Kathleen & I wanted a chance to add my story to your site.I am 39 years old & Dr. Mont performed left hip resurfacing on me on January 3rd 2008. I had spent the last 25 years dealing with the progressively worsening effects of being hit by a car at the age of 14. I had been told that a hip replacement would be necessary someday,
I had left Cormet hip resurfacing with Dr. Mont on Oct. 13, .just over a month ago, and I seem to be healing nicely. I was extraordinarily pleased with his skill. I think he is brilliant.
I am now 6.5 weeks post-op. I returned to my sedentary job 5.5 weeks post op. I still use one crutch at work, but around the house I’m full weight bearing.
I am fortunate

My name is Dennis Roth. I am 66 years old and was an active mountain biker and skier; did black diamond runs and jumps! However, severe arthritis (especially the left hip) eventually prevented me from riding my bike. When I saw the pre-surgical videos made at the Gait Lab at Mt. Sinai in Baltimore, I was stunned by how poorly I walked and what an obviously painful effort walking was

As I noticed today’s date, I realized that 6 years ago, I was in Baltimore getting my hip re-surfaced by Dr. Mont. Since I rarely even think about it anymore, other when someone mentions it to me, I kind of lost track. I guess it works. For those of you on this site looking for relief from your hip problems, as I was in 2001, I certainly
Lefty – 73 years young
I’m doing well nine days after my left hip was resurfaced by Dr. Mont at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore.The first three days after surgery were somewhat discouraging, but on the fourth day I started using crutches, which I find to be MUCH preferable to a walker. I’m 73, had no one to accompany me to Baltimore from upstate New York, and live alone, so
From “The Other Side” – Dr. Mont
Had my resurfacing done by Dr. Mont at Sinai in Baltimore on Feb. 13, and am progressing slowly. The arthritis pain is gone, as is the lower back pain I used to wake up with on the side of my (old) bum hip. I think the staff and facilities at Sinai were top-notch (with a few relatively minor exceptions). Also, I have

I’m kinda new here – used to be around here back in the year following my resurf by Michael Mont (4 years ago I think – maybe 5). Assuming you don’t have complications it really does get better much quicker after the forst week or so. I was driving again on day 9 even though I was still using crutches. … Read the rest
Katie’s Hip Resurfacing with Dr. Mont 2009
January 21, 2009
I had 2 arthroscopic surgeries to repair a labral tear and then open surgery for FAI. The recovery was a beast but I sent my films to Dr Gross and he didn’t see any deterioration of the joint, so I thought it was my best course since it preserved all of my bone. That was 2.5 years ago.
In January … Read the rest

I had my right hip resurface February 23, 2011 by Dr. Mont in Baltimore, MD. I was 39 yrs. old at the time and dysplasia was the diagnosis. It has been a total success, I am doing things again I truly never thought possible. About 6 months post op, I started doing CrossFit workouts.

I am two days post left hip resurfacing with Dr. Mont in Baltimore.
I was not in SERIOUS PAIN unless I actually did something. If I sat around like a couch potato, I would get occasional twinges and aches, but no real pain unless I walked a few blocks or spent too much time in the aisles at the supermarket.… Read the rest

I am headed in for my right hip resurfacing this Wednesday (11/7) with Dr. Mont in Baltimore, MD.

I am headed down to Maryland from the Philadelphia area. … Read the rest
