Bill T’s Hip Resurfacing with Dr. Rogerson 2013
Hockey player and avid hiker Bill T. hits the Ice and
trails six months after his BHR.
Bill underwent BHR at the exact right time; before his ailing hip had soured his
passion for an active lifestyle.
"Eleven months ago I was given the chance to have a BHR by Dr. Rogerson. I
wish I had looked into it years ago. I was always under the impression that hip
surgery was something you put off until your hip was completely shot. And that
can mean years of compensation and pain. It can also mean you may lessen the
chances you would even be eligible for a resurfacing. My BHR by Dr. Rogerson has
turned back the clock. At the 6 month point after surgery I was ready to hit the
ice, backpacked across Isle Royale NP, and enjoying golf again. I really don’t
give it a second thought anymore except the trips to the dentist and at the
airport. (good idea to know how to say metal hip in any foreign language you
need). That being said, this is a big surgery and your success is directly
related to your rehab efforts and adherence to their prescribed program.I am very pleased. I can’t say enough about Dr. Rogerson and his team and
Desiree at the HipHab program. I believe their experience leads to excellent
outcomes. Post-op at Capitol Lakes Center and the HipHab program are as good as
it gets. You really get all the positive encouragement along the way that makes
that first 4-6 weeks go by quickly."
