Fifty-one-year-old Robert Bailey, a native of UAE, was suffering from pain in his left hip over the last five years that not only affected his daily life, but also his career of a physical education teacher.
His only option was having a Birmingham hip resurfacing, which is a complex joint reconstructive surgery done at specialized centers. Robert underwent the surgery at SIMS hospital recently and is back on his feet after complete recovery.
Speaking on the surgical treatment Dr Vijay C Bose, joint director and senior consultant, Institute of Orthopaedics SIMS said, “The Birmingham Hip Resurfacing technique offers many advantages to the patient, saving bone stock as the hip joint bone is not removed and only a cap is fitted on the femoral head, which serves like a cartilage replacement. The procedure allows the patient to be very active post-surgery and the patient can continue to run, practice Yoga and … Read the rest

Had my hip resurfacing done by Vijay Bose in Chennai, India in March of 2007. No problems 10 years later. If your bone density is good having a hip replacement is a no-brainer. You would be a fool to get a total hip replacement. Dr. Gross, from what I understand, is one of the best in the US. In 2007, very few doctors were doing THR’s and McMinn told me Bose was one of the best so that is how I ended up in India. Good luck to everyone contemplating this lifestyle saving procedure. Don’t wait, as I did. Do it before your body and mind are so stressed that you are forced to do it. You will be thrilled you did.… Read the rest
Benny Axelsson, Former Swedish National Soccer Player and Coach underwent Birmingham Hip Resurfacing at Apollo Hospitals, India.
Dr Vijay C Bose speaks on the advantages of BHR and why he chose to perform the procedure on the former Swedish Soccer Player and Coach, Benny .
April 4, 2016 – Its about a tad over 8 months now and I am walking between 7 to 10 km a day, I feel that its the right distance for me.
I also played tennis on the weekend for the first time. It was my biggest active day as I had walked 11.3 km with about 1km
Mr. Schmidt, who was once part of the pre-Olympics team for skiing, arrived on January 26 for a hip resurfacing procedure – a procedure he hoped would give him unrestricted movement and the ability to carry on with his many sporting activities.
…I wrote to Dr. Bose, he explained the procedure to me, and a date was fixed for January 28…
…The procedure, explains Dr. Bose, is different from conventional hip replacement in that it does not replace the femoral head (head of the thigh bone). “The head is kept intact, and we put a cap on it – a metallic cap made of an alloy of cobalt and chromium. The advantage with this is that not only does it preserve bone stock, the natural biomechanics of the socket are also left intact. So, all we do really, is replace the worn out cartilages. My adaptation … Read the rest

This is my first post and I am scheduled for bilateral hip resurfacing by Dr. Bose in July this year.
I am nervous as hell as I have never spent time in hospital let alone an operation of such calibre. I am scared of the general anaesthetic the most and how I will feel when (if) I wake up.
My background is that I am a 44 year old male that has had quite an active earlier life. I played basketball in my younger years and also to some degree gymnastics although not so good at it. I played golf, football, cricket, skiing and surfing. My flexibility has been always quite rigid and at the age of 34 I was told that I had early onsets of OA. This was from a chiropractor that I had once seen because of a sore lower back problem. He insisted … Read the rest

Jonathan Lourie 49 year old male. LBHR. August 2011.My story begins a few years back when I started to feel pain in my left hip. Not Yoga, acupuncture or massage seems to help for long term pain relief. So after much research and communication with many hip resurfacing doctors around the world, I decided to come to India for the operation. Dr Bose is probably one of the top 3 surgeons in the world and I decided that having the best surgeon was the most important thing, probably more important than the device they put inside and where you get it done. Dr. Bose has done thousands of operations of this kind, and nothing beats experience. So although 200-400 may be ok for some, I decided it was a numbers game, and preferred someone who had done thousands. I actually have private health cover, and the whole experience would
IN PRAISE OF DR. BALASUBRAMANIAN (COIMBATORE, INDIA)
In January, I had my left hip resurfaced by Dr. Bose in
both hips were almost equally bad (bone on bone), Dr. Bose
reluctant to operate on both, so I had the left hip operated
home to Chicago and hoped for the best.
right hip began
getting worse, and after about 5 weeks, it became apparent
that I’d have to
have it resurfaced too. I was extremely depressed for a
couple of days, and
then I decided to stop crying about it and just get it done
as soon as
possible. I read Gregg Dean’s e-mail on the surfacehippy
website about a
Dr. Balasubramanian who charged only $5000. Dr. Bose is
great, one of the
best, and I highly recommend him – but at this point, I was
already in so
much debt, I decided … Read the rest
