…The Ducks said the surgery was performed May 9 by Dr. Edwin Su in New York. The procedure is less invasive than a full hip replacement and does allow for the possibility for the 34-year old Kesler to resume his career following a lengthy recovery…
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 week and I thought about you and wondered how you were doing. I am writing to do just that.
I hope all is still well with you and the family. I started playing hockey 6 months after surgery and continue to play to this day … 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.
When I was finally able to start running 6 months after surgery I knew I would have a lot of issues with other than my hip. The last time I was able to run was 2006 – I was 42. I managed to run in … Read the rest

I am 2 years post. Last November I celebrated my one year BHR by riding the 100 mile Maah Dah Hey trail in North Dakota on my mountain bike in one day. My hip performed flawlessly. This last summer I competed in the Breck Epic mountain bike stage race which was 240 miles and 40,000 ft. of climbing over 6 days. My hip felt great. My Birmingham hip actually felt stronger than my good hip. I met a person at the Breck Epic that had his hip done by … Read the rest
It’s my hippiversary! Three years for hip number two. Time for a review. The short version? It has been great. I run, swim, cycle, dance, jump, climb, sit cross legged, everything. More than last year with more to come this year.
The long version:
I can officially say I have exceeded all my expectations, even the secret ones I didn’t dare say out loud. Going into surgery, I was nervous but eager, wanting to lose the pain and the loss of motion. By “loss of motion” I mean not being able to move much, like not walk very far at all anymore. I was one of those people who kept on keeping on even as I got more crooked and … Read the rest
September 13, 2018 – I’m happy to report that I LOVE my new hip. I had follow-up xrays which shoed everything looking good, and my non-op hip in perfect shape, as well.
Last year I decided to try racing (I’ve been rowing for 9 years, but not racing, and the pain was unbearable by the end). I’m happy to report that at the end of this month I am going to FISA Worlds in Florida to race SIX times in three days. Kind of crazy.
I still have trouble with my glute medius, which has been down and out for over a decade, but with PT, strength training, and dry needling, it’s coming back. That piece just takes time.
So … Read the rest

I first met Dr Chris Whately more that 1 year ago. He directly mentioned that I could be a good candidate for Hip Resurfacing. He is from Canada. He took a lot of time to explain everything.
I’ve seen him last week and he explained that he is comfortable with both technics : total hip replacement or hip resurfacing. For my case, he said that I am a good candidate for hip resurfacing : male, young and in good shape.
I can’t remember the name of the device he uses (not BHR), but this is the same that Jean-Claude Vandamme has. Metal on metal and with cement on the femur part. He has used BHR device but prefers the other one, … Read the rest

I am a runner and had my Hip Resurfacing by Dr. Pritchett August 2017. Since then I have run 5 10k’s Our running club has a 10k series that my wife and I participate in. I have noticed that I have pretty much steadily improved my time by a consistent 2 minutes each race, they are all chipped timed. it’s getting easier and I hurt less after each one. it’s Kind of weird, but all of a sudden lately, I discovered I can run as much as I like and it doesn’t hurt, at all.
I limped around for a day after running a 1/2 marathon a month ago. This morning I ran 13.5 miles and I feel no ill effects in … 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 putting all pressure into my quads caused a lot of muscle loss in my hamstrings and glutes. It took me a long time to re-learn how to activate my posterior chain. I have been consistently strength-training 3x a week for a year now and I … Read the rest
On Sunday, June 4th, I accomplished a goal that I’ve been preparing for over a year. I successfully completed my first Tough Mudder. I have been physically, mentally and spiritually transformed in the last 12+ months. From not even being able to simply run…to now after my hip resurfacing leaping, jumping, running and climbing PAIN FREE !
Thankful to friends and family who have encouraged and applauded my hip resurfacing through it all! Your energy sustained me.
I had my right hip resurfacing in February of 2016 by Dr. Brooks and his team at the Cleveland Clinic. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life! It changed my life in so many ways!
I am at the gym no
Apologies for not updating for a while – absolutely NOT an indication of problems. On the contrary, I have been busy with rehab and training.
I am 10 months postop today. Surgery by Prof Cobb at Charing Cross hospital, London. Device H1 all ceramic clinical trial – NHS.
Last Sunday I raced the Triathlon England National Aquathlon championship – 750m open water swim (non-wetsuit mass start), 5k run. I was towards the back of the field (it was fast and furious) but I finished it and loved it! Extremely pleased with 22:43 for 5k run after conservative Dr Su PT schedule, similar to couch to 5k.
I have an openwater 5k swim race on Saturday then rest before … Read the rest
Last week was the 10 year anniversary on my left hip, and this week I hit the 2 month mark on the right.
All the old timers on here have heard my story too many times, so they can feel free to skip this, but for any newbies on the site, here is my story.
I am a sports instructor year round, teaching high level skiing all day every day all winter, and teaching windsurfing during the summers, with lots of surfing and tennis thrown in. Dr Gross said at the time that I would be a good case study to see how the new hip would hold up. My hip from 10 years ago has worked out … Read the rest
