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 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

After reviewing thousands of case studies going back 25 years across six countries, researchers at the University of Bristol say they indicate that eight out of 10 total knee replacements (TKRs) and six out of 10 total hip replacements (THEs) will still be in place after 25 years.
Dr. De Smet places his first ReCerf hip resurfacing device on March 3, 2019 in Johannasburg South Africa. ReCerf is a new type of ceramic on ceramic hip resurfacing device. The traditional standard hip resurfacing device is metal on metal like the BHR , Birmingham Hip Resurfacing Device, the Wright C+ and Biomet. New types of devices are being developed which will be used with all good candidates, even women and small men.

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
