My DOB is 03/27/1969.My History:
I had an auto accident in Dec 1994 and ended up with a broken femur on both legs. They did a IM nailing on both legs.
I have been playing tennis since 1995 till now and play 3-4 times a week. In Jan 2009, I started developing pain in right hip area and I found out that I had a osteo arthritic condition (could be due to trauma from before) and it was literally bone on bone. I took my time to decide on surgery date and continued to play tennis with taking Advil after the games.
Then I consulted Dr. Raterman in June 2009 and he pretty much came out and said that BHR is the best option for me due to my age. I went back to him in April 2010 to solidify surgery dates and finally got it done on June 16th. Total joint Replacement was also an option on the table but he managed to do BHR. But he also had to remove the screw on top of the IM nailing to make room. So, I am told I will need to be on walker for a month. I am responding to PT really well.
Looking forward to continue to active outdoor life but will do so after I heal well. My surgeon Dr. Raterman referred me to your site. Your site has been an inspiration to all of us and Keep up the good work!Regards, Sriram
