I had the Birmingham Hip Resurfacing done on May 4, 2009 and I could not be happier. People ask me about my hip and I tell them it is better than new. No need to say much more. I have ridden my bicycle over 400 miles since then without any issue. It is absolutely better than new and everything that I was told prior to surgery by Dr. Rector’s staff was true. It all went as smoothly as possible.
