I fractured my right hip in a cycling accident in October 2017 (age 26). Three screws were put in to hold the femoral neck together. The surgeon gave me some warnings at the time: (1) He preferred the ORIF to a THR because he felt it was likely I’d need more work later in life, so wanted to preserve as much bone as possible, even though it would be a more difficult recovery up-front. (2) A majority of fractures like mine eventually lead to arthritis.
After a very slow recovery I was back to running 6 months after the accident. I even set a personal record for a 5k race in late 2018, which I was quite proud of, as I was never a runner … Read the rest
I had the hip resurfacing procedure with Dr. Su in June of 2019 at the age of 19. I was injured at my home when I was 10 years old, I slipped and did the splits. At the time I thought I injured my groin, however it never got better. Within a month or so I was diagnosed with necrosis of the hip, and began my journey.
I was treated at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore as they have a well-regarded Perthes treatment center. Since I was so young, and Perthes causes the same thing I was treated as a Perthes patient, and at 10 had an external fixator put in place in order to distract the hip and allow the femoral head to heal. Unfortunately … 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 completing 8 marathons from 2005-2016. Around 2 years ago I started having pain during running .I tried Pilates &Phisiotherapy. After about 6 months I went to an Orthopedist who after examining my X-rays told me I have OA of my right hip. He suggested to wait as long as I … Read the rest

I just thought I’d share with everyone that I am 2-years out from my hip-resurfacing with Dr. Su and I am still thrilled with the results. I am an athletic woman of average height and build. I was 27 years old at the time of surgery.
My journey since operation: I spent a very long time trying to get my strength back, which was lost not during the surgery, but during the injury. Limping around, having issues with stairs, and putting all pressure into my quads caused a lot of muscle loss in my hamstrings and glutes. It took me a long time to re-learn how to activate my posterior chain. I have been consistently strength-training 3x a week for a year now and I … Read the rest
Big Show’s Original Story Here
According to The Big Show, who opted for a hip resurfacing over a full out replacement to preserve the possibility of returning the ring, he is faster now, has better range of motion, and has more to give in the squared circle.
“Right now, [my] quality of life is really good. There’s no stiffness. My range of motion is ridiculous.” Big Show said, “I’m not done in the ring yet. Hell, I’m 380 lbs. I feel now, especially in my hip, has more range of motion now, and I’m faster than I moved in 17 [or] 18 years. I wrestled with Fit Finlay a little bit at WrestleMania. I got in there and rolled around the ring with Fit and … Read the rest
Published on Dec 17, 2017 – BHR The Past and the Future of Hip Resurfacing
Dr Edwin Su takes a look at the Birmingham Hip Resurfacing (BHR) System’s 20 year history and outcome data from implant survival rates to opportunities for patients. In his closing slide Dr Su states that hip resurfacing can have advantages of THR including bone preservation, greater stability and a high activity level. He also says that hip resurfacing is alive and well for selected patients. There may only be a few surgeons performing hip resurfacing, but those who have experience with it are still strong advocates.

Just had bilateral resurfacing with Dr. Su. I too was forced out of the butterfly after about 40 years playing, and became more of a Phil Esposito. I went in for surgery on a Thursday came out Saturday and was hobbling around my house on Sunday without my crutches. I’m 50 and the Same basic size as you. You should consider bilateral. I will post as I get deeper into the recovery and hit some milestones, for now totally pumped with where I am 3 days after surgery.

I had my hip resurfacing surgery with Dr. Su on May 17th at HSS in New York. Its going on 10 weeks post op and everything is going great. Dr. Su is truly a great surgeon and the Hospital for Special Surgery was fantastic.
I had surgery on Friday and went to my first PT session at HSS on Monday. I really recommend the Joint Mobility center at HSS for your first PT sessions as they really know what they are doing. When I got back home and started PT I really felt that they didn’t have any experience with hip resurfacing and spent too much time working on strengthening vs a balanced approach with lots of stretching. For me getting flexible has geen the … Read the rest
