Just wanted to update the progress of my resurfaced hip done on August 18th. Three days ago I finished a 3000km bike ride from the very top of New Zealand to the very bottom and for the entire ride I had zero issues. In fact I’d forgot that it had even been done at all it was so good!
In November I’m off to climb Vinson, the highest mountain in … Read the rest

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

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 sit here “a bit teary eyed” as any surgery is a big procedure, but I got through it. My tears of joy come from thinking about Dr. Rogerson’s broad smile, unhurried nature, caring ways and his commitment to excellence … Read the rest
