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 Johnson and Johnson.
For 18 months my hip was great, but beginning in Sept. 06 pain came quite suddenly and became worse for months. I was misdiagnosed first with bursitis, then with heterotrophic soft tissue ossification , and finally a minor infection for the pain. After that long distance 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 were walking without aids and back to a normal life within weeks. My recovery hasn’t been so smooth or quick, and part of the mental problems I encountered during my recovery were a result of the illusions I had
accumulated. So for those of you that might encounter similar problems … 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 As noted in earlier posts the ASR has now been withdrawn and Antoniou is now using the Adept prosthetic.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 I had an ASR put in, if I wished he could still provide the ASR for my right hip procedure.
I know nothing about the Adept except that is more like the BHR than the ASR and requires less tolerances than the ASR. As Antoniou has an almost perfect record … 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, been bone on bone for some time, so I had always imagined myself an inevitable candidate for knee replacement. But funnily, knees have never restricted my from hiking, cross country skiing, or trout fishing. Then, about 3 years ago, something started catching in my right hip, everything became increasingly painful, … 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 article about Dr. Antoniou in a Readers Digest article.
All I can say is God bless Dr. Antoniou for doing this for me. I’ll soon be dancing again.
My husband calls me "The Nutcracker", lol.

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 (kind of interval training), and using a stationary bike. Using rock rings, gymnastic rings, and the local community centre, too (although public pools gross me out so I don’t swim). This may sound great, but 3 months out I feel like I have a very long way to go…. and … 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 was away working for about six weeks and when she returned she couldn’t believe how much I deteriorated in that time.
For me, I had gained 25 extra pounds over a two year span and I wanted most of that gone before surgery. I lost 23 pounds in about 8 … Read the rest
