Today, March 15, is my 15 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. I started my website https://surfacehippy.info in 2005 to provide people with a website about hip resurfacing. There are over 1500 articles, 1500 personal stories and 5000+ members in the Hip Talk Discussion Forum. I still work on the website as a full time job to keep it up to date with new information and stories. I never regretted having a hip resurfacing or starting my website to help people learn about hip resurfacing.
