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.

Now the decision--- which doctor do I choose?
« on: December 14, 2008, 05:54:43 PM »
Ok, I've read a lot of the information on this site, I've read what people have said about the various doctors, now I must make my decision.

Dr. Gross and Dr. Mont seem to be pretty popular in this country and Dr. DeSmet and Bose seem to be out of the country favorites.  I live in Norfolk, Va so Mont or Gross are both somewhat nearby. 

Any suggestions?

Hi Terry,

I recommend Dr. Su at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan, NY.  Of course I'm partial since I recently had a LBHR done there and I'm recovering very well.  I wanted to go to a top-notch experienced hip resurfacing surgeon who installs a FDA approved device (BHR) that has a long successful track record in Europe and Australia backed by the no. 1 orthopedic hospital in the US (see US World & News Report - last two years). I traveled from Juneau, Alaska (8 hrs total flight time) so you are much closer and can even drive there.  My insurance paid for nearly all of the surgery and hospital bills.

LBHR 60mm/54mm Dr Su 9/29/08 age 55
RBHR 60mm/54mm Dr Su 11/1/19 age 66

Hi Terry,

Sometimes you can look at too many doctors and confusion sets in! I did recommend Dr Mont at Sinai. He is close to you, and by now he has probably performed well over 1500 resurfacings. You can't do better.
