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.

Hello

Welcome to Hip Talk. 

I don't have any experienced doctors from Oaklhoma on my doctors list.  There are so many new doctors doing BHR's that I don't list everyone.  I normally only list doctors that have quite a bit of experience because there is a step learning curve for hip resurfacing. I have a few studies posted that suggest a doctor needs 50 - 100 hip reusrfacing surgeries to become experienced.  My doctor, Dr. De Smet who has done over 2400, suggest a person use a surgeon that has done at least 100 hip resrufacings.

You do have a few experieinced doctors in Texas.  I normally post doctors that I know people have used and are happy with their experience and outcomes. I also try to post the http://www.surfacehippy.info/doctorstatistics.php as far as the number of hip resurfacings they have done

I hope that gives you someplace to start.  I always try to encourage people to find an experienced doctor that feel good about after meeting or talking with them rather than worrying about finding one close to them.  You need 2 good hips to walk properly for the rest of your life and a short trip to find a doctor that will keep them working right is very important. Many of us have travel far to have our hips resufaced.  Some of us just did not have health insurance and could not afford surgery in the US and others just wanted to use very experienced doctors.  I traveled to Belgium along with many others and Vicky traveled to India, again along with a large number of Dr. Bose patients.  So try to find a really good doctor and don't worry about a little travel - if possible.

I have a appointment on Aug 1st with Dr Davoil in Yukon, ok and on Aug 2nd I have a appointment with Dr. BJ Hawkins in Tulsa, Ok.  I will let you know or you can email me at gknouse@hotmail.com to remind me,  what  I find out.  My Dr also suggested that I talk to Dr. Maitino in south OKC,  all three of these Dr's do the resurfacing but I don't know how many each have done, but going to find out....

Good luck Gene.  If you don't get the answers that you want from the doctors, you can always keep looking.  Sometimes it is worth traveling if get what you want.

Please keep us updated about what you find out about the doctors. There will always be people asking the same questions as you in the future and will appreciate any information that you post.

Thanks Pat,  I will post what I find out on these Dr's.  I know I can keep looking but the pain is getting to me, I am so tired and just want it over with, but I am holding out for the right Dr.....one of my Dr's is getting me a name of a Dr in Houston that does the resurfacing, so who knows where I will end up....  ???
