February 14, 2018 Update
I had my right hip done in 2006 at 53 years old by Dr. Mont using a Wright C+ so I’m at the 12 1/2 year mark. No problems, no concerns, no looking back. Interesting reading some of the responses – I had a very easy time of it post op – never took any of the pain meds after leaving the hospital on the 2nd day post op, with the exception of taking one the 3rd and 4th nights to help me be comfortable and sleep. Otherwise Ibuprofen did fine for me. At my 15 day post op check I drove the 4 hours to Baltimore, walked in on one crutch, walked out on none, threw the crutch into the trunk of my car and never used it again, at least not related to the resurfacing.… Read the rest
I am 5 years out of a BHR on the right side. I have always been a runner, but it did take me 4 years to get back to running. My hip just wasn’t strong enough and I had a lot of failed starts. But after years of PT work, I am back full swing….
I ran the Cherry Blossom 10 miler and the GW Parkway 10 Miler races in DC this spring. I had hip flexor problems during the race, although I’ve had them since this whole hip thing started (I had two previous surgeries to try to fix FAI). But my annual cortisone shot cleared that up.
Anyway, I have just signed up for 4 half marathons and a 10 miler over the next year. Crazy, huh??? I was feeling that good!

My name is Kathleen & I wanted a chance to add my story to your site.
I am 39 years old & Dr. Mont performed left hip resurfacing on me on January 3rd 2008.
I had spent the last 25 years dealing with the progressively worsening effects of being hit by a car at the age of 14.
I had been told that a hip replacement would be necessary someday, but at age 39, was depressed to find myself in a large amount of daily pain after a day on my feet at work. My two children, ages 9 & 13 now had a Mom who could no longer play basketball, baseball, soccer or even take a long walk with them anymore. I was also having trouble climbing stairs & getting in & out of cars.
After a glowing recommendation from a former patient of Dr. Mont’s, I contacted his … Read the rest
From “The Other Side” – Dr. Mont
Had my resurfacing done by Dr. Mont at Sinai in Baltimore on Feb. 13, and am progressing slowly. The arthritis pain is gone, as is the lower back pain I used to wake up with on the side of my (old) bum hip. I think the staff and facilities at Sinai were top-notch (with a few relatively minor exceptions). Also, I have read others describe Dr. Mont as not being very “touchy-feely,” but my experience was different — even on surgery days, he popped in to see me twice daily, and even tried to crack a few jokes. Nice guy.
Since I read messages from this board almost every day in the months before surgery, I’d like to share some info I think might be helpful to others:
Pre-Op – I regretted not strengthening my abs more. Getting in & out of bed, … Read the rest
Lefty – 73 years young
I’m doing well nine days after my left hip was resurfaced by Dr. Mont at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore.
The first three days after surgery were somewhat discouraging, but on the fourth day I started using crutches, which I find to be MUCH preferable to a walker. I’m 73, had no one to accompany me to Baltimore from upstate New York, and live alone, so I decided to spend some time in rehab here before heading home.
Sinai Hospital kept me its “acute” rehab unit for six days and then said I was doing so well that Medicare would no longer pay for “acute” rehab, although it would pay for “sub-acute” care – so yesterday I was moved to a Genesis nursing home/rehab facility in suburban Baltimore. My current plan is to stay here until next Friday, when a friend will be available to drive … Read the rest

Surgery Type: Bi-lateral Hip Resurfacing
Dates: Right Hip – 6/5/08, Left Hip (plus some Achilles tendon repair by Dr. Lamm) 6/12/08
Age: 47 male, 5′ 9″, 200 lbs, active before surgery
I learned that I had Osteoarthritis on my 47th birthday November of2007. After playing basketball consistently for months my legs and body were getting stronger but I had worsening groin and hip pain. My local doctor took x-rays and determined my condition. He suggested I Stop all impact sports which, reluctantly, I did. However, after wining to a co-worker about my situation she pointed me to her racquetball partner who had his hips fixed by Dr. Mont about a year before.
Turns out that this guy had one hip resurfaced 8 years ago (as part of a study) by Dr. Amstutz and the other hip resurfaced by Dr. Mont … Read the rest

As I noticed today’s date, I realized that 6 years ago, I was in Baltimore getting my hip re-surfaced by Dr. Mont. Since I rarely even think about it anymore, other when someone mentions it to me, I kind of lost track. I guess it works. For those of you on this site looking for relief from your hip problems, as I was in 2001, I certainly recommend re-surfacing. Back then I met a few guys through this site that were ahead of me and I was able to contact them to discuss their experiences. It certainly helped me make my decision to go forward with it. When we each got our new hips, we were encouraged to report back on all the details on this site. I found my original report, post #1105, back in the ancient history section. I’m sure things are even better today, … Read the rest

Can’t get too technical but I just had the anterior (lateral) approach last week by Dr. Mont. He explained to me that this is his preference and in over 600 procedures only 1 has not worked to expectation. He is very precise and only cuts through gluteus minimus. I am 10 days post-op and feel great, I move around on 1 crutch very well. He has specific ROM precautions but expect full
recovery with no limitations by 3-4 months. I am very satisfied. Each surgeon will have their personal comfort level. I think the approach is less important than the experience and success of the surgeon. I have about a 8-10 incision lateral aspect of hip.Email direct for any more questions. Glad to answer.
Pat you can add any info from me that you want. I am so happy I had it done. Jeremy from Baltimore age … Read the rest
Name: Clay Primrose
Home: Austin, TX
Hip resurfaced: 5/17/07
Surgeon: Dr. Michael Mont
My favorite things about
1.No serious pain post-op
2.Fast rate of recovery
3.No Restrictions after 14 weeks
4.Good Long Term Prospects
It takes a team
This was not a solo effort. I had the benefit of my team and Dr. Mont’s team–both very strong.
My wife Jennifer is the heart of my team. Whether urging me on, planning, arranging insurance, supporting the pre-op physical program, or taking care of things in the middle of the night in the hospital room–she has been a tireless and devoted companion.
The rest of my team included a world renowned chiropractor, Dr. John Bandy; one of the best fitness specialists and trainers in the nation, Michael (Beto) Boggiano; a truly great deep tissue massage therapist, Charlotte Sparks, and a wonderful physical therapist Eddie Almovodar.
The 18 months … Read the rest
I had left Cormet hip resurfacing with Dr. Mont on Oct. 13, .just over a month ago, and I seem to be healing nicely. I was extraordinarily pleased with his skill. I think he is brilliant.
I am now 6.5 weeks post-op. I returned to my sedentary job 5.5 weeks post op. I still use one crutch at work, but around the house I’m full weight bearing.
I am fortunate to have two exercise devices at home that have greatly accelerated my recovery: a recumbent stationary bike (made by True, which allows the seat back to recline way back so that I can pedal non-weight bearing (from a sitting position)–in both directions, forwards and backwards–without violating the 90 degree hip restriction–though my hip restrictions were lifted after 5 weeks) and — most importantly — an Arc Trainer (made by Cybex Corp). The Arc Trainer can be full weight bearing if
