Just had bilateral resurfacing with Dr. Su. I too was forced out of the butterfly after about 40 years playing, and became more of a Phil Esposito. I went in for surgery on a Thursday came out Saturday and was hobbling around my house on Sunday without my crutches. I’m 50 and the Same basic size as you. You should consider bilateral. I will post as I get deeper into the recovery and hit some milestones, for now totally pumped with where I am 3 days after surgery.

Had a BHR on my left hip last Sept 20. I had had arthritis from a previous hip fracture accompanied by severe IT/knee pain. Post-procedure, everything had been going extremely well–I was following the fairly conservative recovery program prescribed by my doctor (no lifting or weight training, no high impact for a year post surgery) and I felt really perfect, but all of the sudden one day a couple weeks ago, it felt like I had some kind of insect bite on my front quadricep. I kept itching it and wondering how a mosquito bit me through … Read the rest
I should have written this article some time ago so others could know my experience with hip resurfacing. Dr. Peter Brooks of the Cleveland Clinic performed the surgery to resurface my left hip on January 18, 2012 and I just recently had my five year checkup. He used a S&N BHR. At that time, I was 74 years old and had been running long distance since about age 55. Between 1994 and 2008, I had run seven marathons, including Boston’s 100th running in 1996. My last marathon was run in Kosice, Slovakia where I served as the U.S. Ambassador.

Update May 27, 2017 – I’m sharing my story because I know that there are others who are experimenting with what it is possible to accomplish physically with resurfaced hips. I have been a life long runner, although the only official race I ran was the Marine Corp Marathon in 1987 at age 30, time 3:14. I was running 7-9 miles on mountain trails when I first felt the hip pain in 2005. I just “ran through it.” I finally went to a doctor in November 2010 and the X-rays showed that both of my … Read the rest
