Roy A’s Hip Resurfacing with Dr. Gross 2013
Three years ago I had the Biomet hip resurfacing done by Dr. Gross. This website was instrumental in choosing to have this procedure done and to select Dr. Gross as the surgeon. I contacted a member of surface hippy and he provided very specific details on the surgery, recovery process, and results. I feel I need to give back as well to tell people my story.
I am 50 years old male who could not tie his shoe before I had Biomet hip resurfacing done on my left hip. 6 months and 1 day after I was back to playing hockey. Today I play as hard and fast (with mostly 20 year old kids) as before the arthritis set in. This winter I went skiing out west and skied most of the double black diamonds trails on Lone Peak at Big sky and spent more time on moguls than groomed trails. I cant be happier with my decision to have the procedure done and to select Dr. Gross as my surgeon. (Yes the 6 hour post surgery drive home was miserable but well worth it!). My only regret is waiting as long as I did. I hope my story is as helpful to others as the input I received from this website when I was making my decision on which path to take.
