24th January 2012
On Tuesday, Mr McMinn reached a momentous milestone in his surgical career –
implanting his 3,333rd Birmingham Hip Resurfacing. To mark the occasion, Mr
McMinn invited colleagues from The McMinn Centre, Smith & Nephew and The BMI
Edgbaston Hospital for an impromptu shindig at Bindles Brasserie in Worcester.
"I was so thrilled and surprised to reach this landmark number, I just had
to go out and celebrate with colleagues who have made this all possible,” Mr
McMinn commented. “The fact that my patients are doing so well and that the
BHR has a 97% success rate at 14 + years in my practice, is a tremendous
reward for everyone involved in this development."
The news comes at a crucial juncture as more and more patients are demanding
highly experienced surgeons to perform their hip procedures. Before dinner,
Mr McMinn gave a short presentation about the history and success of the BHR
and the future of hip arthroplasty.
The milestone precedes another exciting occasion on the 2012 calendar – the
15th Year Anniversary of the BHR, which we will be reporting on this summer.
