Update 2017 I not only finished what is arguably the most difficult full iron distance triathlon race (Challenge Full Wanaka, NZ) in the world but was honored to achieve a 2nd place award in my age group (60-69)! I want to truly thank you and your team for allowing me to accomplish this event. Sincerely, Rich Hampton Left BHR recipient March 2006
Just want to thank everyone involved in my Hip replacement at Anca Medical center. I had high expectations of fast recovery but this is incredible. To try walking with crutches the day after the operation and be able to walk in the city of Gent 4 days after operation was amazing. Today its 8 days since operation and I can walk without crutches. Yesterday me and my new friends took … Read the rest
11 Year Update 3/15/2017 – My BHR is 11 years old today. It is a gift I received from Dr. De Smet from Belgium 11 years ago.

February 18, 2017 – I am now 3 1/2 months post op from my BHR hip procedure and I can tell you I am very happy with the outcome…

I researched the BHR method extensively before I made the appointment with Dr. Schmitt. He is very easy to talk with and explains the details of the surgery completely. He uses the direct lateral approach and he will tell you the benefits of this technique…
…Dr. Schmitt will prescribe 1 week of in home therapy and another 4 weeks of outpatient. Take advantage of the therapy as it will speed … Read the rest
January 26, 2017 I am 8+ years out of having a right hip surfaced from Doctor Gross. I am still good, I almost never even think of the day I could not walk and still do not know I have had my hip done.
