I had my left hip resurfaced by Dr. Brooks on January 18, 2012 at the Cleveland Clinic and recently had my 10 year checkup on August 12, 2022. The left hip was perfect on the xray and, for the last 10 years I have had no excess Cobalt/Chromium ions in my blood. In the last ten years, I have not had a single issue with my replaced hip.

I Am A Runner (Again).My 3.5 month checkup was today. My bones have fully grown into my implants – they are part of me now. The PA was very satisfied with the X-rays and range of motion, and said ROM and strength will continue to recover.He said I was ready to start running again, but told me to take it slow, listen to my body, and I’d probably be gassed in a … Read the rest

I just ran my first post surgery race – 10K road race in Minster OH. Hit a 37:58 at a 6:08 pace. 85th percentile in Age Grade which is National level and close to International (90th), which I was before OA kicked in. Hip continues to improve regarding soreness. I splashed out on Nike Alpha Fly Zooms. Great cushion and nice spring return, really reduces pounding. It has been a long … Read the rest

My turn to announce another anniversary – 7 years of BHR left hip, and 4.5 years ceramic THR right hip.
No hip problems as such, although I always feel the BHR side around the scar and there is an occasional clunk. I also have a little more range of movement from the ceramic hip but not a problem when climbing, biking … Read the rest

5 years for me today I had a right hand side BHR with Dr Ronan Treacy.
General life, I don’t even think about the hip. Haven’t for a long time. I sometimes notice the smaller Range of Movement on that side when doing things like Yoga, Pilates, Circuits etc sessions but one of the benefits of the Covid situation is my Fiancée working from home and these are her main … Read the rest

I continued to train, race in half and full Marathons until right hip pain in 2017 restricted my performance however, I continued to train and race. I average 50 … Read the rest

It is now 3 years since Prof Meek (Glasgow) resurfaced my right hip on the NHS (cost me nothing). I completed the Loch Rannoch Half Marathon today ( Perthshire, Scotland) in a time of 1.54! I took it very easy and could have pushed it even more. I cannot emphasise enough and indeed even thank my Surgeon and the NHS staff in Scotland, regarding how much they have meant to my life! … Read the rest

Today is my four year anniversary for bilateral hip resurfacing with Dr. Gross. How time flies!
The short update is that everything is going well. I run, I swim, I dance, I climb, I walk, I do everything I want to do. Other body parts are wearing out and giving me trouble, but not my hips. The biggest roadblock to my improving continues to be time to train. Because … Read the rest

It’s been 2 weeks since my surgery by Dr Su .I am very happy with the surgical outcome (so far) and also feel the HSS hospital is extremely professional. I traveled from Israel to NY ,was assigned a coordinator for overseas patients,Katherine Alcantara who escorted me on the pre-op examinations and helped with all the logistics. All email and phone consulting was handled very efficiently by Dr Su’s PA Jesse.
I was an active runner … Read the rest
