As I stand
today my bilateral BMHR had been a complete success – I can’t even remember how
terrible my life was before I had this done 🙂 It’s over a year since I had hip
no 2 done and over 18 months since the first.
I had very bad bilateral AVN and that is the reason Mr. McMinn decided I should
go for the new BMHR device. I have to say I am really glad I did 🙂
From my conversations with Mr. McMinn, the device was invented with AVN in mind
as he was seeing young people with the problems like myself. I guess only time
will tell how successful these devices will prove to be. But so far so good !
actually the first of the second batch – guinea pig numereo uno so to speak –
they even got the implant specially made for my first one as they hadn’t had a
production run 🙂
They had an initial clinical trial of 13 patients two years previous with a
slightly different device which I think is highlighted in a lecture on the BMHR
on the web site. The device and tooling was simplified so it would be easier for
surgeons to apply and not such a tricky procedure.
You can actually see my video on the
