Welcome Back

The Hip Talk Discussion Forum was hacked a few weeks back. It has taken me a long time to fix it. The only backup I could use was way back to April 2020. All members and posts up to that date are available. Anything newer has been lost. I am sorry, but that has been the only way to get things up and running again.

Dr McMinn
« on: October 22, 2007, 06:38:02 PM »
I am new to this site, I am currently doing reseach for hip resurfacing. From what I have read Dr McMinn invented the Birmingham Hip and has performed over 1200 surgeries. Have you heard much about him?

Dr. McMinn is the inventor of the BHR and has done over 2700 hip resurfacing surgeries, according to stats I have listed. I have stories from some of his patients here  http://www.surfacehippy.info/hipstories.php  Look about 1/2 way down the page.

It is certainly a very exprienced hip resurfacing surgeon.  Do you live in the UK?

If you are in the US, have you looked at my list of doctors  http://www.surfacehippy.info/listofdoctors.php

Will you insurance cover your surgery?

If you are new I would suggest you start on this page of my website, it will give you a lot of the basic info you need to start with  http://www.surfacehippy.info/visitorguide.php

Thanks for your quick response Pat. I was born in the UK but now live in Canada. It appears that the Canadian surgeons perform their operations outside of Canada. Thatís way I chose Dr McMinn. Thanks for the links they have certainly helped. A common thyme seems to be do it sooner rather than later. I am currently 40 and was diagnosed with hip degeneration 10 years ago. Perhaps its time.

Actually McMinn has now done 4000 BHR's according to the latest at the Miami ortho conference last week.  He is an amazing surgeon, I was blown away by him.  He is charming and very funny as well as one seriously talented surgeon, extremely sharp.  As far as I am concerened the man walks on water.

Thanks for your comments. The last thing I want is a THR at my age (40) Dr McMinn certainly seems committed to the BHR.
