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.

bi-lateral "mini" hip success
« on: June 09, 2015, 04:00:45 PM »
I had bi-lateral "mini" hip surgery with Dr. Marchand on February 13, 2015.  Despite my surgery being on Friday the 13th I have had tremendous success.  I am a 53 year old active male.  Osteoarthritis was causing me pain, limited motion and limiting my activities.  Originally, I planned to go with the BHR, but after research, soul searching, and more research I opted for the mini hip.  Considerations of my decision included the potential for metal reaction with BHR and the availability of mako-plasty with the mini hip.  I cannot say enough about Dr. Marchand, his staff and the wonderful team at South County Hospital.  They were efficient, professional, and thorough.  I am almost 4 months post op now and I am doing most everything (gym, biking, yard work, etc) I did prior to surgery and more.  If I can be of assistance to anyone considering this surgery please let me know.   :)

Are you allowed to run on this "mini" hip, or do you have the same rules as a traditional THR? What are the advantages of a mini hip compared to a standard THR?
