I am a 60 year year old male. I finally had my resurfacing (BHR) done by Dr.
Cook 04/17/13 and doing great!
Dr. Scott Cook was outstanding. I was standing later in the day after the
surgery, and moving around the next day comfortably with a walker. The
pre-operation hip pain is all gone.
What a difference! The only pain I have now is just a little from the
incision and some muscle soreness, which is nothing compared to pain I was
having before the BHR. Thanks, Phil

I’m at 10 weeks post-op and doing fantastic! Walking 2 to 3 miles every other
day without a limp and bicycling about 6 miles on the off days along with some
swimming and core exercises my Physical Therapist (PT) taught me.
BTW, for what
it’s worth, my PT has worked with both hip resurfacing and hip replacement
patients and commented about the experience of less restrictions, and better
range of motion when conducting physical therapy with resurfacing patients vs.
THR. X-ray at 6 weeks (see attached) disclosed no issues.
I truly have my life back and I should have done this early. As sort of funny
side story, I told my surgeon that the final decision to proceed with the BHR
came when I was getting off a plane from NY to Kansas City early in this year
and the ramp attendant asked me " are you passenger who needed the wheelchair?".
Must have been limping pretty bad that day to get that question!
BHR size is 50/56
Before the BHR. Bone on bone with spurs.
