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
Published on Dec 17, 2017 – BHR The Past and the Future of Hip Resurfacing
Dr Edwin Su takes a look at the Birmingham Hip Resurfacing (BHR) System’s 20 year history and outcome data from implant survival rates to opportunities for patients. In his closing slide Dr Su states that hip resurfacing can have advantages of THR including bone preservation, greater stability and a high activity level. He also says that hip resurfacing is alive and well for selected patients. There may only be a few surgeons performing hip resurfacing, but those who have experience with it are still strong advocates.
My name is Zak Belkebir, and I am 54 years old. I have been very active all my life and competed in every sport I had a chance to participate in. I played competitive soccer for over 30 years, and when I couldn’t play anymore I picked up tennis and started running short and mid-distance races. I also go to the gym at least 5 times a week…
…Things came to a sudden halt in 2015..
…I scheduled my first visit with Dr. Su. He was very clear and thorough. I felt very comfortable and was convinced that he is going to be my doctor…
…May 5th, 2017 – The surgery was a huge success. I stayed at the hospital for one night and walked out with nothing but a cane – amazing! I started home physical therapy on day 3. I went to the … Read the rest

Just had bilateral resurfacing with Dr. Su. I too was forced out of the butterfly after about 40 years playing, and became more of a Phil Esposito. I went in for surgery on a Thursday came out Saturday and was hobbling around my house on Sunday without my crutches. I’m 50 and the Same basic size as you. You should consider bilateral. I will post as I get deeper into the recovery and hit some milestones, for now totally pumped with where I am 3 days after surgery.

I started having pain in my hips in 2013 and by the spring of 2016 it was keeping me up at night, I was limping through goal tending, and struggling with a physical day of work in the field. I did my homework and after a lot of research I went to see Dr. Su … Read the rest
Nine year update: X-rays look great. Chromium 1.6 ng/ml; Cobalt < 1 ng/ml.
Retired May 1, 2016. Skied at least 40 visits last winter. Playing racquetball during the winter/spring.
Bagged 6 blue grouse last spring. Bagged forked horn moose 10 days ago and packed entire moose out in quarters over 1/3 mile. Used combination sled over several inches deep water and backpack. Moose backstrap ate like tenderloin as moose was young at 1 1/2 yrs. Also bagged 6 Canadian Geese. Just turned 64 and very pleased with performance of LBHR with no issues.

I had my hip resurfacing surgery with Dr. Su on May 17th at HSS in New York. Its going on 10 weeks post op and everything is going great. Dr. Su is truly a great surgeon and the Hospital for Special Surgery was fantastic.
I had surgery on Friday and went to my first PT session at HSS on Monday. I really recommend the Joint Mobility center at HSS for your first PT sessions as they really know what they are doing. When I got back home and started PT I really felt that they didn’t have any experience with hip resurfacing and spent too much time working on strengthening vs a balanced approach with lots of stretching. For me getting flexible has geen the biggest single challenge so far, I really have to work at it.
I was driving my car after 10 days out of the hospital and … Read the rest
January 8, 2017 – In June, 2015, about three years after my HR, I did a tandem jump. It was my first skydiving experience ever. I didn’t even think twice about my hip for this. After running a marathon, skiing, playing ice hockey, long jumping, and sprinting it didn’t even occur to me that there’s be anything special to worry about for this.
