If you are a patient of Dr. Su's,  what is the length of your hip resurfacing incision?

Thanks

7 inches. He could not do a small incision as he had to do more work than just the HR

Mine is approximately 7 inches.  Luckily it is out of the way and I can sit easily and do basic activities so I really don't notice that much.

I know it is the least of my worries the size of the incision, but it will be a new part of my body I will have to become accustomed to.  Eight inches seems to be the norm and isn't so bad.  I know it takes as two years for a scar to reach full maturity and once it is "white" it will be less noticeable. 
My surgery is in 2 1/2 weeks and I'm trying to educate myself on as much as I can.

Thanks everyone for your replies!!

Don't worry you have one of the best surgeons and one of the best Hospitals.  Dr.Su is absolutely the best.

Good luck!
