I just wanted to check in and show my recent yoga photo. I’ve come so far in the past two years and most can’t believe I am a bilateral hip patient. I recently completed my 200 hour yoga teacher certification. My ROM and flexibility is really great and is getting better every day. I see constant improvement!! In this photo I am hopeful one day the hands will grasp the foot….just need a little more openness in the hips and to lengthen the psoas a bit more.
So glad to have my life back!! Getting my hips … Read the rest

One detail that may be of interest to your readers concerns a pain that I had after the surgery, and what (with the assistance of Ms. Webb, Dr. Gross’s nurse and surgical assistant) I was able to do about it. Perhaps this would fit on the Slow Recovery page. (I’d be happy to provide a more explicit email, if that would help). Anyway:About a month after the resurfacing of my left hip, I would experience an excruciating pain on that side whenever I would attempt to get up and walk after being
Well I am 6 weeks out and doing well. I go for my check up next week.
I have been walking every day and enjoying being outside even in the Alabama
|I am 3 weeks post op from a Dr. Gross resurf. Here are a few thoughts for those who are considering the procedure:
1. Dr. Gross uses a minimal invasion procedure, the incision
2.For the surgery, I was given a sedative and then a spinal.
One week post opI’m a 42 year old who had a left HR with Dr Gross on June 3, 2009. I am fairly heavyset (x Offensive lineman) and when I met with Dr Gross the day before, he responded that “I might be difficult.”. After the surgery, he told my wife that I was the hardest one he’s done this year, and instead of the operation taking an hour it took nearly 2hrs and 15 min. I have a very good friend who had her hip resurfaced four weeks ago with Dr Mont and we are both very happy

I’m a 51 year old female who has been super active and fit since my teen years. I have played tennis, but had to give it up, moved on to road cycling and finally had to give that up this past summer. 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. … Read the rest
Bam’s Hip Resurfacing with Dr. Gross 2013
September 24, 2013
I just want to say thanks to everyone on this forum for the information I’ve gained by lurking these last few months while planning and scheduling surgery. First resurface is next week with Dr. Gross and other than dreading the 4500 mile trip home, I’m looking forward to recovery. I’m sure I’ll be leaning on the forum during that process, too!
Having made it to 50 as a competitive runner (marathons and mountain racing), horseman (eventing, ranching, backcountry packing), avid hiker and hunter, and commercial fisherman, I have far outlived … Read the rest
My left hip socket was smashed up badly in a 1982 car wreck when I was 21 years old. At that time, I was told that a cemented replacement was the option and because hip transplants were not expected to last but a few years that the orthos did not suggest a replacement. In fact, hip fusion would be the only option if my injured hip was painful. Seemed best to wait things out in hopes of improved medical technology.
I toughed it out from 1982 until 2010. I had no range of motion at all in the injured hip, … Read the rest
