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 … 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 … Read the rest
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 … 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 … 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 … 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 … 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… Read the rest

My wife Jennifer is the heart of my team. Whether urging me on, planning, … 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
