I continued to experience significant nerve pain and mechanical hip pain and clunking after the hip resurfacing surgery. Eleven months later it was determined by experts that the BHR components installed were over-sized for my small frame, increasing … Read the rest

Dr. Gross has now performed over 3500 Hip Resurfacing Arthroplasty (HRA) procedures over the last 13 years. Most failures occur during the first year of the healing period. However, there is a slow rate of failure that occurs over time. Therefore the overall failure rate increases for a group of patients as the length of follow-up increases. In the Journal of Arthroplasty 2011, we reported that our Corin Hybrid HRA achieved a 93% survivorship at 11 years follow-up. Longer-term data is not available. The first 1000 Biomet uncemented HRA were reported in the Journal of … Read the rest

Steve spoke with several of our previous BHR patients before undergoing the procedure himself in October 2014. Now 10 months following his surgery, he would love to pay it forward and speak with any prospective BHR patients that have questions about the procedure or our innovative HipHab rehab process.
"It’s been 10 months since my right BHR and things couldn’t be better. I am completely without pain in my hip. I take pleasure even in the mundane things like yard work, climbing on my roof to clean out gutters, etc. I’m essentially back to all activities; summer for me is … Read the rest

February 17, 2014
I’m 4 weeks before my scheduled Surgery. I’ve read a lot of post of leg length discrepancy post- surgery but none prior to. My hip pain started 5 years ago, but it was a sudden change in length 3 years ago that triggered me to seek medical help. I noticed it one day after getting off the treadmill. I would also catch myself tripping on my left foot when just walking down a hall at work for no reason. My Right leg seems a good inch shorter then the left. … Read the rest
