At 45-years-old I had found that an old soccer injury and a bike crash left me with severe hip pain. I was having significant pain with running and even noticed difficulty walking longer than one mile. Running was so painful that my participation in triathlons and local running events was becoming obsolete. After a painful ironman triathlon experience I finally decided to visit Dr. Rector and his staff to consider Birmingham Hip Resurfacing. Two years after surgery, I am glad to say that having the surgery was the best decision I could have made. I am currently participating in triathlon competitions (including ironman), I hiked 48 miles through the Grand Canyon and I am actively competing in local running events – all without pain.
Dr. Rector and his staff are clearly the top hip specialists in the country and their professional approach to the whole process was exemplary. Special thanks to Dr. Rector and the Boulder Orthopedics staff for changing my life.
