December 4, 2017 – Fifth year still had some nice improvement (believe it or not).
This also marks my fifth season back playing soccer. Every season I’ve had little nags here and there (Achilles, hamstrings, calfs, etc) but the hip has been injury free. When my conditioning wanes a bit in off season I can get that “achy” feeling after an hour or so playing. But if I use the foam roller a couple of times a week it really helps with that.
My local physio got me using a kettlebell but for only one of the exercises -the basic kettlebell swing. He coached my technique and this really helped my hip function with both strength and range of motion.
Well, … Read the rest
I have been cleared for all activity without restrictions. I am now playing singles tennis without holding back. I am out of shape (for 95 degree singles tennis), and still feel not as flexible or as strong, but have had no pain even after 2 hours of drills and playing. The hardest thing I find doing is bending and staying down, but I have been standing straight for over 10 years. I expect to continue improving as I keep pushing myself.

I used Dr. Rector in Boulder. I feel the BHR surgery which occurred on April 22, 2010 gave me a
2nd chance at an athletic life. It used to take me 30 or more
seconds to stand up out of a chair. Since my surgery I have been
using the stationary bike for about 1/2 hour and working out on the
elliptical for about 20 mins. 2X per week and balancing on the bosu
ball for a few minutes on each leg during my workouts.
At 10 months out from my surgery I began playing soccer again. I am
a 58 year old skinny Italian soccer player. I have played soccer at
least once a week for 40 years without a break unless I was … Read the rest
|Ten Year Anniversary|
I’m saying hello on the eve of my ten year anniversary. In early 1998 there were fewer than 40 resurfacings in the U.S. and of course no surfacehippy group or knowledge base. My thanks to Keith and all you posters.My story
A former runner, I had been crippled with OA for a decade and needed crutches just to stand more than 2 minutes. Dr. Amstutz said he’d only seen one or two more diseased hips in his career. I placed a lot of trust in him and it sure paid off. I was riding the life cycle 5 days post-op and skydiving 7 weeks post-op (not doctor approved). My other hip was resurfaced by the good doctor early in 2004. I
Dr. Barry Tannen (bilateral HR 12/18/08)
I am a 52 year old physician who had bilateral hip resurfacing with Dr. Su on
December 18th 2008 at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. I had been
diagnosed with moderate to severe osteoarthritis 3 years earlier and
increasingly had to deal with the pain and limitations that this brought on. I
am an avid tennis player who competes locally and in USTA tournaments and
obviously my tennis game was greatly impacted, but so were ordinary activities
of daily living such as tying shoelaces, etc.
My experience with Dr. Su, his staff, and the entire team at the Hospital for
Special Surgery was nothing short of amazing. I left the hospital 6 days after
surgery and … Read the rest
Bryan J’s Hip Resurfacing with Dr. Rogerson 2007
An injury at age 24 started the journey toward this athlete’s BHR surgery 20 years later.
“I am currently more flexible and active now than I was in my twenties and thirties.”
“When I was 24 years old and very active and athletic, I popped my right hip out when I was skiing. The bursa ruptured and it was bone on bone. By the age of 26, I had already lost significant mobility and had increased pain. I went to a few orthopedic doctors and they all told me to live with it as long as I could, and to be prepared for a hip replacement at a very young age. Twenty years later, the pain and … Read the rest
Ivan Dekovic 14 Year Anniversary Hip Resurfacing with Dr. Amstutz 2000
I’m feeling so happy that today I reached my 14th Anniversary. I never though that I would reach that number. At the time of my surgery (I was 54 years old), I would have been pleased if my surface on surface hip replacement had lasted 5 years.
For those asking about impact sports, let me tell you that I have been playing Volleyball, Nationally and Internationally (US Open, World Master Games, Huntsman World Games, League, Senior Tournaments, etc.), since 2004. Before these Tournaments, I played in local Leagues in the San Francisco Bay Area. As far as I remember, I started playing again after 1 1/2 to 2 years after my surgery, but before … Read the rest

Software Engineer Colin from Gloucester heard about hip resurfacing after some discomfort manoeuvring his legs. Whilst he was attracted to the bone-conserving BHR, the alternative left more to be desired. “The THR was offered as a possibility,” recalls Colin. “The thing that put me off about total hip replacement is the spike going down into the femur and the … Read the rest
