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.

Happy Double Surface Hippy in Northern Virginia
« on: April 08, 2008, 08:26:03 PM »
I am four days post-op on my second BHR.  My first was done on 12/18/07.  Both surgeries were performed by Dr. Andy Engh and the very capable teams at Anderson Orthopaedic Clinic and the Inova Joint Replacement Center at Inova Mount Vernon Hospital in Alexandria, Virginia.  While this procedure is not easy or painless and a certain level of commitment is necessary on the part of the patient, the opportunity to regain the ability to walk and participate in normal activities, with no pain is truly a gift.  I still have a ways to go, but the prospect of trading the pain and inactivity I have experienced over the last several years (probably more like five to seven years), for the prospect of living a normal life is overwhelming.  I would like to publicly thank Dr. Andy and all the other folks involved for the gift they have given me.

Hi Jim

Congratulations on your second hip! Your are a Double Surface Hippy!

Glad to hear your recovery is going well for you. 

I hope you have a great summer with 2 new BHRs.  Sounds like Dr. Engh is an excellent surgeon with a great staff.

Good Luck and keep in touch.

Thanks, Pat, and thanks for the very valuable resource you provide members of our community.  I hope that I too can be of help to folks who are considering BHR or going through the process and look forward to providing whatever advice I can offer.  Best regards,  Jim
