Just got right hip resurfaced by Dr Antoniou in Montreal about 18 hours ago. Back at the hotel. I tried walking around the room with no crutches/walker, backwards, forwards, sidesteps. SHort steps but unassisted. I told this to the nurse who came by to bring me a walker, she was worried and said it’s too early to be walking without assistance.

Just an update with good news. I saw Dr. Greidanus for my 2 month follow up. He declared that I now have no restrictions allowing for a return to cross trainers, stairmasters, bicycles, and even tennis. I was referred for physio for “aggressive” treatment. I had related in an earlier post the following: I had a resurface with Dr. Antoniou in Montreal on Jan. of 2005. It was the ASR by Depuy of

Richard from Nova Scotia Antoniou RASR April 10 2007 I’m a new 69 year old surfacehippy that was in pretty good shapebefore the operation and am now 10 days post op in Montreal. Staples were removed yesterday and I’ll be returning to Nova Scotia tomorrow.
At the outset I have to say that I think I read too many stories of surfacehippies who with few problems and little pain … Read the rest
Nicholas Leblovic Hip Resurfacing with Dr. Antoniou 2005
I had a LASR in 2005 with Dr. Antoniou in Montreal. My right hip is now giving me problems and so I recently paid another visit to Antoniou and he indicated
that I am now a candidate for a a right hip resurfacing. As noted in earlier posts the ASR has now been withdrawn and Antoniou is now using the Adept prosthetic. However he indicated that, as … Read the rest
John’s Hip Resurfacing with Dr. Antoniou 2009
March 3, 2009
I first heard of hip resurfacing back in 2002 when my brother-in-law had one done in England. At the time I had no hip problems so his descriptions, whilst fascinating were purely academic. Yes hips were fine then. Knees, that was different – had cartilages removed from both 40 years ago, before the days of the arthroscope, and had a ruptured ACL 15 years ago, … Read the rest
Dr. John Antoniou replaced two hips with the articular resurfacing. The first one was done in 2007 the second one this summer 2009. I am 69, perhaps one of the older gals that have had this done. My recovery has been good and the first one I had done feels wonderful.
I was so happy that I had the resurfacing done. I originally was going to do the old complete replacement until I read an … Read the rest
May 9, 2012 I am almost 3 months post-op (BHR R hip; Dr. Antoniou), and the right hip did seem like it was going well…although I think I might have overdone things over the weekend climbing outside and then in the gym. I managed a pretty steep 11c and other 5.11’s in the gym (all on TR), but I still feel pretty fragile.
I have been climbing up and down a long set of stairs … Read the rest
April 22, 2011 I waited a full 12 months to get this surgery ( I live in Canada, free medical care but longer wait times ). In that wait period, I lost considerable muscle in my left leg, developed a horrible limp due to an impingment and walked incorrectly for that time. From my original diagnosis, I went from anti inflamatories infrequently to being unable to walk any distance in a short time. My wife … Read the rest
