Greetings to Surface Hippies and soon to be Surface Hippies!
Today marks the 10 year anniversary of my bi-lateral hip resurfacing surgery. January 10 and 12, 2011. My resurfaced hips are doing very well and they allow me to be very active and live a healthy life. I am an avid hiker and backpacker even at 65 years old.
I am forever grateful for this amazing procedure and technology. It’s still hard to believe I have metal in my hips because I don’t feel it or have any limitations.

“I had my right hip resurfaced by Dr. Rogerson in July 2010. Last fall, October 2014, I hiked with my husband from the north rim to the south rim of the Grand Canyon. 24 miles in 2 days. It was #1 on my bucket list. Thanks Dr. Rogerson and team for making this possible!” -Laura R.
I am the ex jockey and cutter/reined cowhorse rider that has a right hip resurfaced with Dr Sparling in Vancouver, WA (Wright C+) 7 years ago at age 45 (petite female).

Denise’s Hip Resurfacing with Dr. Kelly 2012
December 25, 2011
I have chosen Dr Cynthia Kelly with Colorado Limb Consultants. We had a great consultation with her, her confidence in the procedure, experience with the whole hip AND BHR, as well as her demeanor went a long way to solidify my decision. And while she may not have done as many as other doctors, her attention to detail, her understanding of the placement, her knowledge of the hip anatomy and her experience with limb preservation in general has give me the confidence and courage to call her my surgeon.
Scheduled for January 19, 2012. It’s coming up fast so I don’t have a lot of time to second guess or get cold feet. I give … Read the rest
Jim Ryall’s Hip Resurfacing with Mr. McMinn 2000/2003
Published on Mar 21, 2012
Jim Ryall continues to live a busy and active live. The intrepid walker sets out to climb Mount Aconcagua in Argentina, almost ten years after having bilateral Birmingham Hip Resurfacings (BHRs) with Mr McMinn in 2000 and 2003 respectively.
Ex-Royal Marine Jim Ryall’s used to pushing himself to the limit. But crippling hip arthritis in his late 30s forced him onto a diet of anti-inflammatories to stay active. He sought respite and after several fruitless consultations with other surgeons, bilateral BHRs from Mr McMinn – in 2000 and 2003 – enabled him to ditch the medication and get on with a pain-free life.
Now 11 years after his first BHR, Jim’s testing … Read the rest
Patricia Duke’s Hip surfacing with Dr. Gross 2006
I began having some groin pain in the summer of 2004. An avid gardener and horseback rider, aches or pains weren’t uncommon and I didn’t pay too much attention to it. In the fall, I went on a two week trip and thought it would be a good rest for whatever muscle was bothering me.
On the way home on the plane, it seemed that the groin pain/burning was actually worse. It bothered me more and more over the fall and into the holidays. In January I made an appointment with my PCP to discuss why the pulled groin muscle wasn’t getting better.
He asked me a few questions and moved my leg around a bit, judging … Read the rest
