Patricia’s 15 Year Anniversary Video from 2021

Patricia Walter’s Hip Resurfacing

March 15, 2024 was my 18 year Anniversary of receiving my BHR Birmingham Hip Resurfacing from Dr. De Smet in Belgium in 2006. My hip resurfacing is still great and I never had problems with it. I still believe hip resurfacing is a great alternative to a total hip replacement for the right candidate – normally younger people that are very active and want no restrictions.
