"Resurfacing is very attractive to patients, less attractive to surgeons because there are many ways to get into trouble. If you do it, if you do the deep dive, you will become a better hip surgeon," Peter J. Brooks, MD, FRCS(C), said at the Current Concepts in Joint Replacement Winter Meeting.

Brooks said in the mid-term results of study of more than 2,200 patients implanted with the Birmingham Hip, there were few complications with no dislocations or femoral loosening seen...

...Overall survivorship at up to 8 years was more than 99%, he said. For the male patients with osteoarthritis who were younger than 50 years, survivorship was 100%.

Coming up on my 2 year anniversary with a left BHR from Dr. Brooks.  Great to read this information.  So glad I chose to go with him. 
I don't even think about my hip anymore.

Coming up on 3yrs for me and I am still very active in competing in triathlons, racquetball! Never had a problem in recovery and there is no way I could stay this active without my BHR! I have sent numerous people Dr. Brook's way and they have all had similar results. I am glad I found him less than 1hr from me. When I first started to research this procedure, I thought that I would have to travel cross country.
