Had a LBHR on Mar 12 2010 at Texas Orthoropedic Hospital , Houston,TX by Dr Gregory Stocks.  He came recommended and has done close to 200 BHRs and over 1800 THRs. McMin trained in 2006. Was great to know what I was about to go through and "hippies" saying "do it".  Thanks to all. I'll still have many questions.

Pat, I received an uncemented Biomet resurfacing device on June 23, 2010.  My surgeon is Dr. Gross.  At 10 days post surgery, I think I am quite well and almost painfree.  I just feel wonderful.

Hi,

I am a newbie - got a Right Conserve+ 17 days ago from Dr. deSmet of Belgium. We got home to Canada 6 days ago and today I had my first exercise session in our local pool. The therapists were blown away by how mobile I was. They have very little experience with resurfacing, and see people with THR, 6 weeks post-op, who have lots of rehab to go. I would highly recommend Dr. de Smet for his surgical skill and his progressive rehab program. He has a great staff as well.

Hi Juan,
 I was of the understanding that most, if not all, HR's are metal on metal. I was told by my Dr who did the proceedure, that because the femoral component needs to be thin to "cap" the head (unlike the solid femoral ball in a THR), ceramic would be too fragile, and therefore it must be made of metal. Not sure about the acetabular cup... is that sometimes nonmetal? Again, my Dr explained that because the ball is bigger than in some THR, the acet. cup in HR needs to be press fit (no screws, as in THR) because there would be no room for screws (with screws they must then line the cup-reducing room for a large head- or the screws would cause friction). I believe that press fit cups need to be metal, so the bone can intergrate into them.
 Am I misinformed? Please set me straight if I am. Thanks, Lu

Coming from London, I understand that a device named Finsbury sounds more attractive than Birmingham!

I didn't get a choice, I liked the c+ but my surgeon is old-school McMinn and the finsbury is closest to the original spec, he knows the engineers and likes the instruments as well. He's pretty sceptical about cementless caps.

How's yours doing? I did 100 bodyweight squats to 90* with the swiss ball last night followed by bike and eliptical for an hour; legs are buggered today but the hip feels fine.

Hello All,

Received a RBHR-4/5/2011( 9 days ago ).  Procedure went very well.  Feeling better each day PO with PT.  Trying to ween myself off the Percocets(2 in AM to get started....Maybe 1 or 2 more during the day as needed).  Doing 4-5 sets of PT prescription a day.  Seems to be going well .  On 2 crutches for 4 days; then 1 crutch for 5 days then onto just a cane today(thanks Dad).  Getting up is getting easier and easier-as well as getting seated. 

Hope everyone is doing well...

LBHR, 3/2/11, Boulder, CO, Community Hospital, Dr. James Rector. After about 5 years of increasing pain, I'm feeling as though my "old" self is returning. I'll feel complete once I can get back on the road bike and can tackle a mountain or 2.

Comet on both. Feels great, and on the downslope on both, one at 4.5 months, the other at 7.5 months. Dr. Snyder did a good job on both.
