It has been so long since I reached out to say hi and I apologize for that. Once you get your life back you tend to jump in full blast and not look back. I hung around the surface hippy site for a few years but when the notes became so negative I had to back off. It wasn’t syncing with what was going on in my life post-surgery. I just saw Dr. Rubinstein last … Read the rest

November 27, 2018 I had my right hip resurfaced the day before Thanksgiving 2015 by Dr. Gross. I could not be any happier with the results to this point. I went almost 10 years with bone on bone in my right hip and had a very noticeable limp for years before getting the HR. The only cardio I could do during this period was the stationary bike. This surgery was life changing for me.… Read the rest

I just thought I’d share with everyone that I am 2-years out from my hip-resurfacing with Dr. Su and I am still thrilled with the results. I am an athletic woman of average height and build. I was 27 years old at the time of surgery.
My journey since operation: I spent a very long time trying to get my strength back, which was lost not during the surgery, but during the injury. Limping around, having issues with stairs, and … Read the rest

According to The Big Show, who opted for a hip resurfacing over a full out replacement to preserve the possibility of returning the ring, he is faster now, has better range of motion, and has more to give in the squared circle.
“Right now, [my] quality of life is really good. There’s no stiffness. My range of motion is ridiculous.” Big Show said, “I’m not done in the ring yet. Hell, I’m 380 lbs. I … Read the rest
I am just over one year removed from right hip resurfacing surgery (BHR) performed by Dr. Anton Plakseychuk at UPMC Magee in Pittsburgh, PA. I have been hesitant to report, because it has only been a year, but the results have been so dramatic, that I feel the need to let others know, that at least some of us have been able to return to an active lifestyle and in my case, perhaps better than I was before.
I chose … Read the rest
