Hip Resurfacing is an excellent bone-preserving option. The Surface Hippy Website features information for perspective patients. Patricia had her hip resurfaced in March 2006 with Dr. De Smet of Belgium. Because she felt there was a need for a website, she conceived and designed Surface Hippy in 2005. Since she knew first hand how wonderful hip resurfacing was, she wanted to help others learn. Visit Pat’s Corner to read her informative articles including How to Choose A Doctor and Questions to Ask Your Doctor. Surface Hippy is not financially controlled by any medical companies, doctors or hospitals. Patricia maintains the website and adds information daily.
Many hip resurfacing patients have provided their personal Hip Stories. Perspective patients find them very helpful. The stories explain why the patient chose hip resurfacing instead of a total hip replacement. They explain their surgeries, the device they received and what surgeon they chose. Many patients return to the sports they love – read their stories here – Athletes Stories
If you are a first time visitor to Surface Hippy the Visitor’s Guide will help you start to learn about hip resurfacing.
