Birmingham Hip Resurfacing “is the best decision I ever made. Dr. Lopez and his team gave me my life back.”
For Tony Kobrinetz there is never a moment that he isn’t doing something physically. His hip symptoms kept getting worse and then went to see Dr. Lopez. I “couldn’t have had a better total team helping me to recovery. I am back to riding my bike, climbing hills…”
We understand how important it is for people to get back to work and play pain-free. The hip experts at Midwest Sports Medicine specialize in helping people get full recovery without surgery. Sometimes therapy isn’t enough and the latest techniques in medicine and surgery can be the best option.
The trademarked Birmingham Hip Resurfacing system (BHR) was introduced in 1997 as an alternative to total hip replacement. This bone-conserving procedure, combined with the virtual elimination of dislocation make BHR ideal for younger, more active patients. Dr. Lopez trained in England to perform the BHR procedure.
