I am currently in the hospital one day after having a BHR on my left hip. Three months ago I had the same procedure on my right hip. Hopefully I am now on my way to recovering some of the life I have lost.Less than five years ago I was playing professional basketball and getting ready to make the transition to my new career as a fire fighter. I was completely pain free, had no indications of any pending health challenges and was excited to start another job where my physical conditioning was an asset. However, not long after starting this new career I began to notice tightness in my hip flexors and began to have a hard time squatting down. A trip to

I’m about to do my LBHR with Dr. Philip Schmitt in metro Detroit. He’s done about 700 BHRs so far, and according to his office he’s got a great success rate – only 6 failures/revisions.I apparently was born with femoracetabular impingement & have arthritis (10y+ at 41 y.o), and over the last year or so it’s degraded on the left side to where I can’t easily lift the leg up stairs, or do the other stuff ya’ll know full well about. It got down to bone-on-bone, and through my anti-inflammatories & light pain meds, it’s been pretty tolerable, so to speak.So this Friday, 6/11/2010, I’ll have the left hip done, followed on 8/13 by the right one. The main reason
My experience with a bilateral hip resurfacing with Dr Edwin Su.
I am 52 years old and on January 3, 2011 I had surgery to repair
both hips. I have been physically active my entire life, and
exercised 3 to 4 days per week including both cardio and weight
training. I played ice hockey in college, and continued to play
competitively until age 30. I enjoyed running outdoors, and loved
riding my bike regularly. I am an avid skier, as well. All of this
came to a screeching halt with what seemed at the time to be a
simple muscle strain, but turned out to be arthritis in both hips.
I had begun to notice what I thought was a muscle strain in the
groin … Read the rest
My name is Brian Day 58, I live in Flanders, NJ. On Tuesday April 26 I had bilateral hip resurfacing at HSS by Doctor Su.
On Wed. morning they got me out of bed and I walked 2 steps forward and 2 steps back and then repeated it, that was it for the 1st pt session.
On Thursday afternoon I was on crutches and navigated a 4 step staircase, and at noon on Friday they sent me home.
I can’t say enough about HSS and Dr. Su. The main reason I’m writing you is to tell you how much your website helped me along with everything related to this procedure. I had 0 apprehension going in and mostly it was because of you and your

I’ve changed my mind about the dislocation cause…you may not remember that I was less than 3 months from my left knee replacement (when my dislocation occurred). That was my worse knee and the OS straightened it much more than the right side which would require more stretch to the inside quad. Since I’ve started back exercising, it’s been real clear that the quads that run from hip to medial side of knee are “stuck”. I’ve been trying to stretch it out now for months and just may have to live with it this way or get it “released”.
So, what I think happened is that those muscles/tendons/ligaments involved in the quadriceps and their kin wouldn’t give sufficiently for that bent, rotated
I had my RBHR 7 weeks ago and my Left hip will be done on Nov 9, 2010 with Dr. Marc Anderson. The right side is getting stronger every day and no more groin pain in the right side, thank God. It will be nice to have both sides done so I can get back to Life.
I had bad knee pain and the Dr took a x-ray of my Hips.Bboth hips shot bone on bone OA. I Had A RBHR 7 weeks ago and my knee pain is gone .Hip feels great.
I am having my LBHR Nov,9 I had my right side done on Aug, 31.The rehab is the hard part, surgery is not as bad as you think.

After two hip replacements in 5 weeks, I will hopefully never know more about hip replacement than I do now. Right now I’m 12 days post-op hip #2. Both were the Birmingham Hip Resurfacing, so may not exactly apply to you. So here’s some of the subtle and not-so-subtle things that you should known.
For me, carrying 25 lbs of recycling to the curb was hurting like hell. If you’re 25 lbs overweight, that’s the same as me carrying 50 lbs of recycling down to the curb and then hauling half of it back up to the garage. Sorry, baby; but if that was the case my garage would have been looking like one of those “Hoarders” shows on TV. Not to get preachy, but … Read the rest
April 8, 2010 – 46yr old scheduled 4/28 with Dr. Brooks in Cleveland. I will be traveling roughly 5 hours from SoCen PA. I am a nurse and cracking myself up that I have not met him but feel completely ready to GO! I feel like this is the right surgery for me and need to thank a patient I did a stress test on, who first mentioned this surgery as a possiblity and referred me to this website. And boy am I ready–this was quite a journey to get to this final month. At this point I am walking around with a butter knife offering it to anybody who is willing to cut me and fix it! Well, close to that anyway. The only … Read the rest
