Nicholas Leblovic Hip Resurfacing with Dr. Antoniou 2005
I had a LASR in 2005 with Dr. Antoniou in Montreal. My right hip is now giving me problems and so I recently paid another visit to Antoniou and he indicated
that I am now a candidate for a a right hip resurfacing. As noted in earlier posts the ASR has now been withdrawn and Antoniou is now using the Adept prosthetic. However he indicated that, as I had an ASR put in, if I wished he could still provide the ASR for my right hip procedure.
I know nothing about the Adept except that is more like the BHR than the ASR and requires less tolerances than the ASR. As Antoniou has an almost perfect record with the ASR (only one failure out of about 1000 procedures) I am confident that he has the skill and experience to properly install the RASR however he did warn that Depuy was no longer "supporting" the ASR.
