Hip Resurfacing is an excellent bone-preserving option. The Surface Hippy Website features information for perspective patients. Patricia had her hip resurfaced in March 2006 with Dr. De Smet of Belgium. Because she felt there was a need for a website, she conceived and designed Surface Hippy in 2005. Since she knew first hand how wonderful hip resurfacing was, she wanted to help others learn. Visit Pat’s Corner to read her informative articles including How to Choose A Doctor and Questions to Ask Your Doctor. Surface Hippy is not financially controlled by any medical companies, doctors or hospitals. Patricia maintains the website and adds information daily.

The first advantage of a hip resurfacing is that the hip device, due to its large size, allows a person to return to any of their favorite activities without restrictions or possibility of a dislocation. The old fashioned total hip replacement devices use a much smaller diameter ball as compared to size of your natural femur bone. The small size of the ball allows a hip to dislocate more easily. The size of the hip resurfacing device is matched very closely to the original size of your hip, so any movements you make are much less likely to cause … Read the rest

Best thing I have ever done! Got my left hip resurfacing with Mr McMinn in 1999 and 20 years later it’s still great. I’m an active person doing cycling, walking, swimming, gym and judo. A normal hip replacement would have probably been revised 20 years ago! Right hip resurfacing done in 2014 and perfect and still very active at nearly 67.

Today is the 5 Year Anniversary of my left Hip Resurfacing with Dr. Robert Marchand at South County Hospital in Wakefield, RI. My hip has been great. I am very active on it as well. I do a lot of cycling. I also work as a college football official in the fall and have no issues at all during the season. I do continue to do a lot of stretch, strength and stability exercises as well, and feel that plays a big role in how successful my resurfacing has been.
I had my Left Hip Resurfacing done by Dr. Robert Marchand on 4/2/14. My age was 44 at time of surgery.

I had my left hip resurfaced by Dr. Rector on July 24, 2018. I am from San Diego and a lifelong surfer, tennis player, and yoga enthusiast. I first started to experience severe hip pain back in 2011. By the end of 2017 I could barely walk a half mile or sit on my surfboard while waiting for a wave to catch. The pain had become impossible to tolerate for my active lifestyle.
During the summer of 2017 I visited one of the only local surgeons with experience in hip re-surfacing. He told me I was not a resurfacing candidate for several reasons that didn’t make any sense. They were not any of the reasons that I had … Read the rest

It was two years ago that Joe Virag of Dearborn Heights, a dedicated runner…
…was told that he needed a joint replacement — and his running days were over…
…Virag found a metro Detroit orthopedic surgeon (Dr. Schmitt) who specializes in a type of unconventional hip replacement surgery known as a Hip Resurfacing that is commonly pursued by male patients under 60 who wish to stay active. ..
…Virag went on to have both of his hips replaced in late 2017. He has been back to running for almost a year and says he remains pain-free. And neither he nor Dr. Schmitt are worried about this exercise regimen prematurely wearing out the new hips.

It has been so long since I reached out to say hi and I apologize for that. Once you get your life back you tend to jump in full blast and not look back. I hung around the surface hippy site for a few years but when the notes became so negative I had to back off. It wasn’t syncing with what was going on in my life post-surgery. I just saw Dr. Rubinstein last week and I thought about you and wondered how you were doing. I am writing to do just that.
I hope all is still well with you and the family. I started playing hockey 6 months after surgery and continue to play to this day … Read the rest
I started https://surfacehippy.info in 2005 because I felt people should have information about hip resurfacing.

The one remaining constant has always been – hip resurfacing is an excellent choice for active people that want to be out of pain and return to their previous activities. The top, experienced hip resurfacing surgeons are still doing hip … Read the rest
