SAF’s Hip Resurfacing 2015 with Dr. Marwin and 2003 with Dr. Gross

November 16, 2015 When I had my first done with Dr. Gross nearly 13 years ago, there were no options in the NYC area, where I live. In fact, there were very few surgeons doing the procedure in this country. I was part of the original FDA clinical trials, and was one of the first few hundred people to have resurfacing in the USA. My judgment at the time was that Dr. Gross was the best option. I believe I was right, as he has turned out to be one of the preminent resurfacing surgeons in the world. September 15, Read the rest

Bill’s Hip Resurfacing with Dr. Marwin 2015

Thank you for all of the info you post on your site. I read the updates fairly regularly, and it is a great wealth of knowledge.

I had been told that a hip replacement would be necessary someday, but at age 39, was depressed to find myself in a large amount of daily pain after a day on my feet at work. My two children, ages 9 & … Read the rest

George’s Hip Resurfacing with Dr. Marwin 2009

January 9, 2009

Two years ago today (1/9/2009) I had BHR on my right hip, but the rest of me
is still 50+ years old. Other parts of my body have some aches and pains, but my
new hip has no pain, no clunking, no shorter leg, so squeaking, better than new.

While the first 3-4 weeks after my surgery was not the most pleasant time of my
life, I got through it and it’s all just now a memory. I was told that me left
hip will need some intervention in the future. While I’m not rushing to fix … Read the rest
