« on: May 01, 2008, 05:08:16 PM »
I currently am seeing a doctor who only performs total hip replacements. I am 52 years old and active in many sports and would like a resurfacing ....looking for a recomendation for a surgeon in BC with good experience rating in hip resurfacing.

Hi

Welcome to Hip Talk.

I do have some doctors listed for BC   http://www.surfacehippy.info/listofdoctors.php#British_Columbia

I don't, however, know much about them since we seem to gather more info for the US doctors. 

If and when you get a resurfacing, I hope you will write a story for us and tell us about the doctor you choose.  Then we can start to learn more about the Canadian surgeons.

Hi Larry,I am a 52 year old female and had my hip resurfaced at U.B.C. hospital by Dr.Donald Garbuz on April 8/08. I was very lucky to have my GP referr me to him with the words "he is the best". Four weeks post op and I enthusiastically agree. I am walking with a cane,can drive and my PT is blown away. Don't wait Garry and don't let them talk you into a thr if you qualify for a resurfacing. We can thank you Pat for having all this info on your site.

regards,
Terry

Hi Terry

Congratulations on your new hip.  I hope everything continues to go well for you.

If you have time, give us an update now and then.

Could you start your stroy under the Hip Stories section and maybe tell us a little more about your pre-op, surgery and post op expereince?  It is always a good way to share info about your doctor and it always helps other people.

I wish you the very best.

I don't have any surgeons in British  Columbia listed.  I do know, if you are at the other end of Canada, Dr. Brooks is doing them in Ontario.  I am sorry I don't have any others listed.

Hi Dane, to my knowledge their is only one surgeon doing BHR operations in BC.  Dr. Clive Duncan out of VGH/UBC hospitals.  I was lined up to have surgery with Dr. Duncan, which is a good option as he is a well regarded surgeon who does a lot of the harder hip revision surgeries and had been a leader in the orthopedic field for a long time.  In the end, i decided to go to a high volume hip resurfacing surgeon in the States, Dr. Pritchett in Seattle.  I also got the Buechell-Pappas system with a cross poly insert (synovo preserve also marketed as, i think).  6 months out and please with the result so far.

Happy to answer any questions if you want to DM me.

Cheers,
Grant

Hi, thanks for the quick replies.. This will be my second go around, but the first was overseas covered by my company insurance. Now I will be looking for coverage through the BC healthcare system, and not sure how that will work. Did they somehow cover your op in Seattle? I did call the nursing hotline, (811) but they had no info.

Hi Dane, no coverage through BC Medical.  If you go out of province you are on your own for payment.
