Scott Tinley was one of the most prolific triathletes of all time, competing in and winning hundreds of triathlons all over the globe. Scott has been suffering through hip problems for a number of years and recently decided to have his hip resurfaced on Thursday, December 13th in Wisconsin with Dr. Rogerson
The Hip Chronicles
I am a 62 year old female Triathlete…well I was, until arthritis of my left hip stopped me running about 2 years ago. I struggled on with anti-inflammatories and an infiltration, and had to content myself with just the swimming and cycling. But even walking became difficult and I had pain at night, so I knew something had to be done.
Before I took early retirement in France, I was an Anaesthetist in the UK, … Read the rest
Returning to running was a priority for this BHR patient
Marty F. has been back logging his mileage since 2010 and is still going strong!
“I was your 192nd Hip Resurfacing patient clear across the state, near Sheboygan.
You resurfaced my hip in August of 2007. In April of 2010, I began counting the miles I ran each month. From then until now, I totaled 1,469.05 miles”

“Hey Dr Rogerson! Hope everything is well up in Madison!
Things are good here. I have been limiting my running to only 6 miles per week and my “bad” hip seems to be holding. I’ve been enjoying competition in shorter races and doing pretty well!
I received the honor of being named USAT (USA triathlon) ALL AMERICAN for 2013! … Read the rest

I am a 44 year old former college/professional player. I began playing in the street at age 7 in my neighborhood outside of Washington DC, and kept at it until joining an apprenticeship program for the North American Soccer League in 1982. The NASL began to have financial problems and teams began to fold in the early 80s, in two years the league went from … Read the rest
I’ve done triathlons for the past 20 years. I had a bicycle crash about 20 yrs ago which started my OA on my right hip. I had to stop running about 4 yrs ago and decided to get RBHR this year, 2008. I had my pedal stoke analyzed in March 08 and I was pedaling 60% with my left and 40% with my right.
I first heard about the BHR from Floyd Landis … Read the rest
In October 2013, against all odds and at 60 years of age, Rick Rubio surprised himself by placing 28th in his age group in the Ironman World Championship. He managed a personal best time of 12:39.
Just a few short years earlier no one – not even Rick – would have believed this accomplishment could be possible.

I not only finished what is arguably the most difficult full iron distance triathlon race (Challenge Full Wanaka, NZ) in the world but was honored to achieve a 2nd place award in my age group (60-69)! I want to truly thank you and your team for allowing me to accomplish this event.
Sincerely, Rich Hampton Left BHR recipient March 2006

Written in 2013:
Six Years Later.
For an athlete, the soft tissue that connects muscles and bones is like gold and oil—a limited resource to be used sparingly. Sustainable farming of tendons and ligaments is, for the moment, unsustainable.
And so it is for those of us who through use, abuse, trauma or genetic fault find the meaty soft tissue, the fluid-filled, shock absorbing soft tissue gone … Read the rest
