May 30, 2018 – So, I rarely think of my hips, but I’m doing a bit of volunteer work that reminds me of how lucky I was 16 years ago when I found Dr. DeSmet. My husband and I both had hip resurfacing in October, 2002 – we were his first husband/wife team – my hip is 45 minutes older than his! Just wanted to let you all know that those hips and the subsquent ones are all working just fine and we are still able to do whatever we want. Amazing. I also want to shout to the wonderful Dr. De Smet who still answers my emails and who has over these 16 years operated on many friends of mine and who has consulted for many others who he either advised were not ready for surgery, or who in the end chose not to travel for surgery. I understand the fear of travelling for surgery, but I gotta say I would do it again in a flash (if I had another hip) – he’s just that great AND has done over 10,000 hips now.
