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 the doctor. And Fit was laughing. He was like, ‘you’re fast again’, which made me feel good because my mobility is back and I had … Read the rest
In 2015 it had become quite apparent that I would need hip replacement or hip resurfacing on my right hip. I had been training in karate for 44 years and lifting weights/bodybuilding for 42 years…
…Meeting Dr. Boettner at his Manhattan office was all I needed to make up my mind as to how to proceed…
…So it was decided that he would perform the surgery on March 26, 2016. Today is March 24th, 2017 as I wanted to be able to fully evaluate my condition after one year…
…Today, I am happy to report, that I am training pretty hard at the school, dramatically increased my stability, and I’m even sparring with my black belts. For you runners out there, I’m able to run, and even do wind sprints, with no pain.… Read the rest
Since his left BHR hip resurfacing procedure Ron has not skipped a beat!
Scuba diving, tai chi, road biking, and downhill skiing are all activities that he is back out enjoying pain-free.
“Since undertaking my hip resurfacing surgery, I have participated in more than 200 scuba dives in all kinds of conditions and locations, and attained a PADI Divemaster rating through extensive training and testing.
I have ridden my road bicycle thousands of miles, and completed 100 kilometer and 100 mile rides for charities. I do tai chi, and just returned from a downhill skiing vacation at Grand Targhee in Wyoming.
At age 59, I am considering having Dr. Rogerson resurface all of my joints, so that they work as well and as painlessly as does my resurfaced left hip!
Thank you, Dr. Rogerson, for all that you have done for me”. -Ron A.… Read the rest

I just wanted to check in and show my recent yoga photo. I’ve come so far in the past two years and most can’t believe I am a bilateral hip patient. I recently completed my 200 hour yoga teacher certification. My ROM and flexibility is really great and is getting better every day. I see constant improvement!! In this photo I am hopeful one day the hands will grasp the foot….just need a little more openness in the hips and to lengthen the psoas a bit more.
So glad to have my life back!! Getting my hips done was the best thing I’ve done for myself.
My surgery date with Dr. Amstutz was 8/29/06.
I had been in considerable pain for four years
before the surgery, but thought it was do to
spinal stenosis. I saw Dr. Amstutz after Kaiser
diagnosed my right hip to be bone on bone
osteoarthritis and would need a replacement and
of course, to wait as long as possible. I met
Calvin Jung , an Amstutz bilateral through a
mutual friend and the hip resurfacing seemed the
way to go.
I had a great experience with the surgery.
Dr. Amstutz and this was, I might add, the first
time I have had any surgery or been in a
hospital other than to deliver my son in the
I had poor bone density and Amstutz was
concerned their condition might be too soft to
do the resurface. He said being a dancer for
years, my bones were big and probably had … Read the rest
