Very interesting video posted by Dr. De Smet of bilateral ReCerf patient walking unaided at 5 days post op. The ReCerf is the new ceramic on ceramic hip resurfacing device that is available in South Africia and Uk and Austrailia




Hopefully this will start to be more available in a few years. Probably many years away from being in the US.

My Surface Hippy Facebook page usually has the information posted first since Dr. De Smet shares everything on Facebook.

There is also a group associated where people join and share information.   https://www.facebook.com/groups/563542233991642/

Looks great progress for hip resurfacing future.
It alleviates the metal issue and biocompatibility issues as well as small sizes for women so a massive step forward if the product is reliable.
This is the device I would have liked and was searching for in 2015.
It may take some time to turn surgeons and to branch out to new hip resurfacing surgeons.
Good stuff.
