57 year old male here. December marked my one year bilateral BHR operations with Dr. Schmitt in Commerce, MI. In short, this is was a wonderful method to reduce hip pain and improve mobility! My hip pain is down a great deal, so much that I’v never taken an ibuprofen or other OTC pain pill since my early operations recovery! Yes, my pain is reduced that much:) Further, I’m back to running between 3-6 miles per week. My pace is slowed, my range is shorter, my stamina is reduced, but all of these are slowly but steadily improving as time … Read the rest

I just wanted to check in and show my recent yoga photo. I’ve come so far in the past two years and most can’t believe I am a bilateral hip patient. I recently completed my 200 hour yoga teacher certification. My ROM and flexibility is really great and is getting better every day. I see constant improvement!! In this photo I am hopeful one day the hands will grasp the foot….just need a little more openness in the hips and to lengthen the psoas a bit more.
So glad to have my life back!! Getting my hips … Read the rest
I had a bilateral hip resurface on Jan 3rd 2011 Dr. Barber, Kaiser / Oakland, CA he is very nice and a good surgeon. I am doing well and on no med’s since Jan 23 rd except Advil . I had hip displaysia in both sides. Now I’m straight and even and balanced for the first time in my life. It was a weird feeling at first.
Sleeping is my main issue and my right side is weaker than left. There’s also so much difference in what some PT’s let you do than others. I have Kaiser and my visiting
Lucinda Tucker’s Bilateral Hip Resurfacing with Dr. Barba 2006/2010
Nov 26, 2014
Hard to believe 8 years ago I had my first resurf and started resuming life as someone that was no longer crippled. Then 4 years later I need a resurf on my other hip. Since then it’s been smooth sailing. I’ve resumed all the activities I’d slowly given up because of the crippling hip pain. When my first hip started going bad all I heard was you’re too young for a hip replacement, you need to wait as long as you can. In 2006 when it received FDA … Read the rest

POST-OP BHR PATIENT TESTIMONIAL
“I have had both hips resurfaced by Dr. Rogerson. I had been told by other doctors that hip replacement was my only option and I seemed a bit young for that so should try to manage the pain as long as I could. I could no longer manage the pain. Most days I had to crawl up my stairs at home. I avoided leaving the house because my walk had become a lurch, and getting into a car was a very painful experience. Every minute of my life was consumed with dealing with the pain. I … Read the rest
Prior to bilateral hip resurfacing my hips were hurting and in constant pain. I was uncomfortable sleeping. It was challenging to get in and out of the truck and hard to drive. Kneeling down to plant a tree was miserable which made being an arborist very challenging.
Now 6 months out from my most recent BHR hip resurfacing I CAN DO IT ALL!
People were so great at Stoughton Hospital. They provided me with good, attentive care. The admitting nurse even visited me in the room 24 hours later! That demonstrates a caring person.
HipHab is the best laid out … Read the rest
