Welcome to Hip Talk.

There are 2 MI doctors on my list Dr. Blaha and Schmitt - both have done 200 or almost 200.  They are on my list because their patients have written to me and are happy with them.

You can find their info here  http://www.surfacehippy.info/listofdoctors.php#Michigan

If you are not happy with them, look at my list and consider traveling a little further if need be.  It is most important to use an experienced doctor you feel good about rather than using a doctor in your own back yard.  Many of us have traveled to Belgium and India to use some of the most experienced doctors in the world. 

There is Dr. Rogerson in WI that a lot of people really like. He has a rehab facility similar to Dr. De Smets in Belgium where I went. Here is his info:

John S. Rogerson, MD- BHR trained 2006
250 Hip Resurfacings to date ***
2 Science Court Suite 101
Madison, WI 53711
Phone (608) 231-3410
Fax (608) 231-3430
Meriter Hospital

I hope that helps. Don't miss my list of questions to ask the doctor when you have an appointment http://www.surfacehippy.info/questionsfordoctor.php

Good Luck.
