I am Walter Bussart from Nashville, Tn. I had bilateral HR by Dr. Su on Sept 19,2008.
I am 66 years old. Hospital for 5 days and flew home. Crutches for 4 weeks and started driving before 5 weeks. I am very pleased with my progress now after 7 weeks.
I am back to working-out but limit the weights to 30 lbs while standing. There were some difficult times, particularly sleeping.
The arthritis pain is gone and I am happy with the results. I would recommend HR to others and, if you have problems with both, I recommend doing it … Read the rest
On Thursday, July 12, 2007 I had my right hip resurfaced by Dr. Edwin Su at the Hospital for Special Surgery in NYC.
First, a few things that weren’t clear to me before the surgery.
I was not supposed to take any ibuprofen for 2 weeks before surgery. I was supposed to stop taking glucosamine chondroitin a few days before surgery and no iron for a few days before surgery. So check on any medication restrictions for weeks before the surgery.
I had hoped to bring my sandals to the hospital, but they said only close toed shoes (although this … Read the rest

Hello from Arrojos hospital bed! Did indeed have it done today. Dr. Su told
me this morning, the worst that could happen due to my past week is that I’d
feel lousy. I told him I am already going to feel lousy! Lets just do it!
At 4:00 I was in a lot of pain. But now (10:00) I feel pretty good! I am even
doing leg exercises in bed (ankle pumps and heel drags). I know I know don’t
overdo it. Walking tomorrow!

As a television medical correspondent for
decades on shows like Today, Dateline and the CBS evening
News and author of 12 books on consumer medicine, I have to
admit it. I have never faced a more vexing decision than
that choosing between a total hip replacement and hip
resurfacing. The claims and data appeared wildly
contradictory and each surgeon’s take was miles apart from
the others. I called great friends in orthopedics at
the leading Harvard hospitals and in NY, Baltimore and Los
Angeles. The word I got was emphatic. Don’t do the hip
resurfacing, it’s a failed concept. It … Read the rest
