Pete Hollinger RBHR June 3, 2008 Dr. Engh

I had the Birmingham hip resurfacing procedure performed on my right hip by C. Anderson Engh, Jr., M.D. on June 3, 2008 at Mt. Vernon Hospital in Alexandria, Virginia. On August 1, 2009, 14 months after my surgery, I performed a 507 pound deadlift at the NASA (Natural Athletes Strength Association) World Cup Power Sports Championship in Oklahoma City. This lift was a NASA Power Sports world record in the 60+ age group of the 198 pound weight division.

college, I played in a series of start-up pro leagues … Read the rest

teams at Anderson Orthopaedic Clinic and the Inova Joint Replacement Center at
Inova Mount Vernon Hospital in Alexandria, Virginia. While this procedure is not

normal activities, with no pain is truly a gift. I still have a ways to go, but
the prospect of trading … Read the rest

June’s Hip Resurfacing Dr. Engh 2010

I had a left BHR on November 11, 2010 with Dr. Andy Engh. I was 48 (almost
49) years old at the time. I am a small boned female and I was bone on bone

from several different angles) looked fantastic! Everything looks good…I go
back in a year and then if things still look good, I go back in 5 years. He
wrote a prescription for a metallosis test to get baseline numbers but just … Read the rest
