It was twenty years ago today...
« on: November 11, 2019, 08:11:50 AM »
Mr McMinn replaced my right hip with a BHR twenty years ago (followed by another on the left over six years ago).

It has felt exactly like a natural, healthy hip throughout all that time and I am still as active as I want to be, including tennis a couple of times a week, cycling, motorcycling etc.

I regard myself as very fortunate that this surgery came along just when I needed it.

Best wishes to all,
David

Thanks Granton. You're one of the true pioneers who took on sizeable risks, with a relatively unknown procedure that had almost no historical result data. You're a true OG, and we all thank you for your courage.

20 years, you are the man.  At 8 years I'm just getting started compared to you!
