I wanted to share what I believe to be a compelling story related to my BHR procedure. I received my new Birmingham hip 14 months ago from Dr. Brooks at Euclid Hospital (A Cleveland Clinic Hospital) after another physician suggested that I may be a candidate for the BHR as opposed to a total hip.

The only thing I could still do with minor pain was ballroom dancing and some yoga. I was diagnosed with LHOA around 4 years ago and the only option I was always given was THR. Of course I stayed in denial and … Read the rest
