Jim S’s Hip Resurfacing with Dr. Su 2010
October 28, 2010
Dr. Su Right Hip Resurfacing at Hospital for Special Surgery on 10/23/10. Amazing Doctor!! Amazing Hospital!! I’m home since 10/25/10 i feel great. I stopped taking pain medications today. I sought the advice of others hip resurfacing doctors. No other hip doctors would perform the surgery because of a cyst I had on the head of my femur. Dr. Su was up for the challenge and I am grateful for that. I am 39 years old and ran over 12 Marathons NY and Boston. I still play Goalie (Hockey) 3 days a week, coach and officiate also. So the thought of getting back to my active lifestyle is anticipated. My pain was ridiculous and I could not even walk. Even now post op my pain is better than it was going in.
For me the question wasn’t do I want or need a hip resurfacing, I didn’t want work to evaluate me if I was up to standards with a hip replacement. I needed a surgeon with the guts to do it. I had a nasty cyst on the femur. I was Lucky to have Dr. Su perform it. So get in get it done and be grateful.
I’m 39 year old goalie, ref and coach . I can not wait to get back out there!
