Greetings to Surface Hippies and soon to be Surface Hippies!
Today marks the 10 year anniversary of my bi-lateral hip resurfacing surgery. January 10 and 12, 2011. My resurfaced hips are doing very well and they allow me to be very active and live a healthy life. I am an avid hiker and backpacker even at 65 years old.
