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.

Info for Depuy ASR
« on: February 16, 2008, 05:30:48 PM »
It took me awhile when searching to come upon this site. It's not the general site that pops up top in searches and linked from MD's sites. I didn't find it here either but I could've missed it. It helped me alot and I am going to have it done by Dr Heinrich here in Austin, TX.http://www.articularsurfacereplacement.com/index.php?id=3

Hi
Welcome to Hip Talk.

I do have info about the ASR  http://www.surfacehippy.info/hipresurfacingdevices.php

It is difficult to get to the top of the search engine pages.

If you would have just searched Google for Hip Resurfacing - I would have been #9 on the very first page. 

It is tough to rise to the top on the big search engines.

Anyways, I am glad you found us.  I hope that you will write a story for me to post about your surgery with Dr. Heinrich and your new ASR.  I do have a few stories from people with ASRs.


You can also see some people had ASRs that were on my age chart if you look down the page  http://www.surfacehippy.info/agesurvey.php

There tend to be a lot more people with BHRs since it has been around since 1997.  The ASR is a newer hip resurfacing system.

Good Luck and keep in touch.

Pat

Keep us informed

Hi

I also wanted to point you to the Australian National Joint Registry  http://www.surfacehippy.info/vmbhrhistoryinfo.php

You can see the revision rate for the ASR is 3/100 as compared to the BHR which is  0.8 /100

There are also national registries for other European countries, you might want to take some time to see what the ASR record is on those. 

Too bad the US doesn't have a national registry that keeps track of doctors statistics - it would be very useful.

The ASR is just newer and there is not much of a track record yet.

It took me awhile to find the ASR site not this one. Good, the ASR pro site was here, I just hadn't found it. Actually from the page here, click on the active link provided then click "home". The home link is what I posted.
