January 14, 2017 – I think my lack of activity in this forum could be viewed as a good thing. I don’t think about my hip resurfacing at all and haven’t in quite a few years.

I recently have had knee … Read the rest

I always remembered the “shoes with the bar” that I wore to bed as a kid. I had no idea why I had to wear them, what I did know is that as soon as my parents went to bed, I would untie them and take them off. I grew up remembering the shoes, but with no real health issues, I didn’t ask questions as to why I
I am a physical therapist from Lake
Placid, NY. I had an insidious onset of right hip pain
approximately three years ago which gradually but
progressively intensified. X-rays revealed extensive
(bilateral DJD), and my local orthopod was all set to give
me a total hip replacement. I did an extensive amount
of research, and came across the resurfacing technique.
Intuitively it just made sense to preserve as much
natural bone as possible, so I consulted … Read the rest

March 10, 2013
Well actually my boss who is an M.D. Had hers done by Dr. Clarke about 3 years ago and she is very happy with the outcome. It is weird because I was already his patient before I went to work for her and now find that he did hers also.
I have no reservations about him since he has been doing this for years. The … Read the rest

Doctor Michael Clarke Right hip resurfacing
Check in Community General Hospital at 8:30 AM
First I talked to anesthesiologist about options. Usually they give
an epidural, but when I explained that I had had back surgery 6
years before for a bulging disk that affected my left leg and that
since the surgery some of the pain had remained. After having a new
MRI it … Read the rest
After years of thinking I had a bad back, in the Sept. of 08, I found out I had a bad hip instead. With moderate degeneration I knew I had to have surgery. So I researched Hip Replacements on the internet. The Birmingham Hip Resurfacing popped up and I knew this was just what I needed.
I am a professional photographer and very active. I am also only 51 years old. I don’t run marathons … Read the rest
