I am a 61 y.o. woman with “bone on bone” osteoarthritis of my left hip and a chronically low white blood cell count.

At age 67, the onset of osteoarthritis in my right hip was precipitous and debilitating. The chronic dull pain led to many sleepless nights and uncomfortable days. My wife (an internist) happened upon an article about BHR in one of her medical journals and suggested that I explore this procedure.
