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
Failed BHR & surgeon experience August 02, 2008I am 18 months post LBHR and I am posting today with the hope that I can spare anyone contemplating the resurfacing procedure the consequences of choosing a surgeon with insufficient experience. I chose a surgeon who had only recently trained in England, I was his 7th resurfacing procedure. I justified the decision because he was local and had a stellar reputation. I foolishly reasoned that he

Hi Pat,I hope that you are well.I just thought I would email you personally with information for your file and research that has sadly led to me having a revision from BHR to THR.

Was standing on my good leg, operated leg was at about a 90 degree angle while I
put some cream on my knee. Probably bent forward and flexed my hip a bit, the
operated side knee rotated in and I started to fall. Tried to push with the
operated leg to right myself, NO STRENGTH. I collapsed and fell back, noticing a
strange friction in the hip joint after landing on my butt.
Called my … Read the rest

I am sorry to report that my 5 years and 8 months hip resurfacing has failed. The cap ( mfg. Corwin) on the femoral head has worked partially loose…..moving slightly. The pain is pretty bad and Dr. Gross is scheduling me for THR using the big ball metal socket (Corwin) that remains well attached. Corwin is making the THR ball to fit and as soon as the FDA approval letter gets here I am going

My name is Wilma and I live in Sittard in the Netherlands. Three and a half years ago I had an operation of my left hip and I became a resurfacing hip. Very soon after this operation my hip and my left leg gave pain problems. The surgeon from the hospital in Sittard told me that these pains were caused by my back. I therefore was sent to the pain clinic and

I’m just out of Jan Palfijn Hospital in Gent after THR
revision surgery on Friday. I promise to write everyone individually in the
coming days, but here’s the story.
