I’m new to the site and thanks for everyone’s stories, it really helps getting my head in the right place for what is ahead. I’m scheduled for a BHR with Dr Eastaugh Waring in Bristol, UK on 13th November 2015. Seems I’m in a similar situation to lots on with years of playing squash and football have left me in this situation at 46, hoping this will mean I can at least put my socks on without problems at least!
My sport of choice is probably a new one on here, I don’t run or do anything particularly extreme but what I … Read the rest
9 Year Anniversary of My Hip Resurfacing Surgery with Dr. Snyder in 2010
Read Hernanu’s original story here: https://surfacehippy.info/hernan-bilateral-hip-resurfacing-dr-snyder-2010/
I figured I’d check the hips as well, for my (almost) nine year anniversary of my hip resurfacing.
The hips looked great, had blood work done for Cobalt (I guess they just track that now in that office), it came back at 1.0 with both hips.
So the progression has gone : First test – Chromium 3.4, Cobalt 3.1, After four years – Chromium 1.7, Cobalt 1.1 and now after nine years – Cobalt 1.0 Having both hips done and the bar being to stay under 7, it is very good news.
I understand that some of us have challenges after hip resurfacing surgery, all the … Read the rest
“This is the first time we’ve been able to use ceramic-on-ceramic in hip resurfacing,” said Professor Bill Walter, Orthopaedic Surgeon at Royal North Shore Hospital…
…Anton Constantine is one of 20 patients from around the world who is taking part in the pilot study.
There are plans to enrol 200 patients in a clinical trial next year…
…The new ReCerf ceramic-on-ceramic implant is made of a material called BIOLOX delta which has a 12 year clinical history in total hip replacements.
Hip Resurfacing has traditionally been with metal on metal hip resurfacing devices like the BHR Birmingham Hip Resurfacing and Wright Conserve Plus and others. So ceramic on ceramic devices is new and an exciting development in hip resurfacing.

Hip Resurfacing patient, Andy Murray, meanwhile, may have been watching on with interest in the match with Bob Bryan. Bob Bryan secured a second title of the season. Bob is returning to tennis after hip resurfacing surgery at the start of this year.
Bryan had the same hip resurfacing operation as Andy. He won the three-time Grand Slam champion last summer. He partnered his brother Mike to a 7-5 7-6 (10-8) win over Greece’s Stefanos Tsitsipas and the Netherlands’ Wesley Koolhof.
Bob had his hip resurfacing with Dr. Su in 2018.
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

Wednesday July 16,2008 I had a left hip resurfacing by Dr. Ure, and am doing very well so far. We flew into Reno and drove to Mt. Shasta. 4 hour easy drive, Susanville is the place to stop and stretch, get food, about half way to Mt. Shasta.
The drive back after surgery was NOT a problem for me, the road is good and not very winding, and it is a beautiful drive! I was taking only Tylenol by then.
Dr. Ure is a quiet, but extremely kind man, easy to talk to!
He thought I might get a Conserve+ because my femur was too small for one size BHR Birmingham Hip Resurfacing, too big for the next. He would not know for sure until … Read the rest

I first met Dr Chris Whately more that 1 year ago. He directly mentioned that I could be a good candidate for Hip Resurfacing. He is from Canada. He took a lot of time to explain everything.
I’ve seen him last week and he explained that he is comfortable with both technics : total hip replacement or hip resurfacing. For my case, he said that I am a good candidate for hip resurfacing : male, young and in good shape.
I can’t remember the name of the device he uses (not BHR), but this is the same that Jean-Claude Vandamme has. Metal on metal and with cement on the femur part. He has used BHR device but prefers the other one, … Read the rest
The Before and After Effects of a Hip Resurfacing Operation:
For more than 2 years I suffered severe pain in my right hip, which arose from a common arthrosis. The pain was so intense that I had to completely forget about undertaking any form of sport, which in turn made me very depressed. I had been a passionate sports person, playing tennis all my life and occasionally other sports like squash, jogging and skiing. In the end walking a short distance was a struggle, even with the assistance of a cane purchased in the hope that it would help relieve some pain. That was the end of 2014 and despite constant pain I hesitated to have an operation. The concept of me as a mid-forty … Read the rest
