After Hip Resuface

Ok, I thought you’d enjoy this……I started teaching my yoga class 13 days post op! Yes, I stood with my cane for most of it, but I could do side bends, some forward and backward bending and I did in fact teach the class! And I’ve been at it ever since – taught my first children’s class last week – that would be about 20 … Read the rest

Joy LBHR Dr. Bose 2007

I went to India to Apollo Hospital and Dr. Vijay Bose was my surgeon.

It turned out my bones were very strong and could take hip resurfacing instead of the hip anthroplasty he had previously suggested.

I am on Day 10 post op and things are going fine. I’m still in India- spending time at Fisherman’s Cove Resort before flying back to the States. The surgery was successful. I saw an x-ray and it looks good. The doctors also thought so. I was given some exercises by a team of physiotherapists to strengthen my muscles and relearn walking correctly. I … Read the rest

Hemant Purohit LBHR Dr. Bose 2007

My story begins from the x-ray and consultancy at a local hospital; he is one of the well known doctors in our small town. He diagnosed me with the terrible problem called as avascular necrosis. I am very young; I am just 26 and have AVN with the unknown cause.

Than my friend like elder brother took my x-rays to Chennai. There we both consulted with world famous doctor (Dr. Bose) involved in the hip surgery.

HISTORY OF THIS WORLD IS THE HISTORY OF THE FEW PEOPLE WHO HAD FAITH IN THEIRSELVES. SWAMI VIVEKANAND … Read the rest

Linda Pugliese Bi-lat Dr. Bose 2006

I started taking karate in 1976 under George Annarino of Newark Ohio. The style I train is a mixture of Japanese and Okinawan styles. I hold a 6th degree Black Belt under the Ko-Sutemi Seiei Kan Dojo, and have won 5 NBL World Championships between 1993-1997 while competing on a National Team called “Full Contact”. I also won a gold medal competing on the USA team in Mexico City at the “Mexican Olympic Festival” in 1993. My last competition before my surgery was in 2002, but the pain was too intolerable for me to compete any more. Now I currently … Read the rest

Ron K’s Hip Resurfacing with Dr. Bose 2009

November 1, 2009

One of my favorite pastimes before my hip pain became too unbearable, was to
climb up Amicalola Falls, a steep mountain in North Georgia, USA. All throughout
those difficult first few weeks after surgery, I kept dreaming of the day that I
would once again be able to climb the 604 steps to the top of my favorite
mountain.
Well, today was a beautiful, clear crisp day here in Georgia, so I could not
resist the temptation to take the ride up there. I climbed up those 604 steps
with gusto, and could not hold in a … Read the rest

Mark Nelson Bilateral Hip Resurfacing Dr. Bose 2010

I’m 51 and have bilateral from
Dr. . Bose 2010 and 2011.

These are some notes that might help anyone
going into the hip repair project. Story starts in 1999,
after doing a gym competition, which involved spinning at
150+ RPM for about 7 minutse; to win a track suit (never
collected) my hips became very stiff. Ignoring this for a
year, did a long triathlon in Japan, with a marathon at the
end ā€“ reasonable runtime but sore in bad way.

After this, went to the doctor, assuming Iā€™d pulled some
muscles, the x-ray identified primary osteoarthritis in both… Read the rest
