BHR is 17 Years Old June 30, 2014

The Birmingham Hip Resurfacing (BHR) is celebrating being in clinical use for 17 years today. Since then the BHR has been implanted over 150,000 times and is widely recognized as the most successful hip resurfacing device.

Having implanted two more in theatre yesterday Mr McMinn has implanted in excess of 3600 BHR's and changed the lives of many, enabling them to get back to pain-free, active lifestyles. Mark Edwards was just 38 years old when he received the world's first BHR on July 30, 1997. Two years ago we caught up with Mark and his progress 15 years after his surgery, click here to watch Mark's BHR interview.

The Birmingham Hip Resurfacing was introduced by Mr McMinn as a solution to painful, arthritic hips suffered in people deemed too young for a traditional Total Hip Replacement. The bone-conserving design retains the majority of the bone with only a few millimetres from each articulating surface being removed. This allows for better anatomical matching, stability and range of movement, the BHR's design has remained unchanged since its first implantation.

One of mine is 15 years old next month and the other one year old in a few days time.

He has certainly transformed my life. His results demonstrate that with the right surgeon, the BHR is a fantastic solution.

I had my first one resurfaced in 2000 , so now 14 years of pain free on the left --- just about to see Mr McMinn next week to assess the right hip for the same procedure , so am looking forward to 2015 with two pain free hips  :)
