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.

Hi  Welcome to Hip Talk.

Dr. Mont is certainly the most experienced of the three with over 1200 hip resurfacings. His video presentation is available on this page  http://www.surfacehippy.info/hipresurfacinginfo.php  He spoke at a gather of surface hippies and wanna be hippies.  It is long, but very informative.

I don't know if he is actually using the BHR.  I think he normally uses the Wright C+ which is also an excellent hip device. Many surgeons will use it instead of a BHR if they need a size that the BHR does not have.

I personally want a very experienced doctor. I explain why in this article http://www.surfacehippy.info/pcselectingsurgeon.php   His resurfacing is almost as much an art as a learned skill.  If you read Dr. Bose explanation about dislocations he explaines how a doctor continues to learn and become better and better.  There have been quite a few studies that show it takes 50 - 100 hip resurfacings to become experienced.  I personally like many hundreds or 2500 like my doctor De Smet has.

It is really a personal decision of how you feel about the doctors after you meet and talk with them.  You will get a gut feeling about each and be able to choose. Some people are willing to have surgery with less experienced doctors.  People feel if a doctor can do a THR, they can do a hip resurfacing.  But a hip resurfacing is a much more technical and demanding surgery.  So again, it is up to how you feel about it all.

Let us know if you have any more questions. There is a lot of information on my website that can help you, but it is sometimes difficult to find since there is so much "stuff".
