I found out I qualified for as an age-grouper for Team GB in the world aquathlon champs in Pontevedra, Spain in May 2019. I passed the one year postop landmark feeling strong and ready to crank-up the run training. I have just completed my first run race for over 5 years and managed 21:32 for 5k – not at all fast but going in the right direction.
My hip feels great – all those squats, lunges, bridging, hopping, jumping … seems to have worked. About to start next phase of run training to include speedwork … Read the rest

I am a runner and had my Hip Resurfacing by Dr. Pritchett August 2017. Since then I have run 5 10k’s Our running club has a 10k series that my wife and I participate in.

July 21, 2018 – Back on the Mats, my hip resurfacing story
March 16, 2017
I am a 61 y.o. woman with “bone on bone” osteoarthritis of my left hip and a chronically low white blood cell count. My recent research indicates that metal-on-metal resurfacing (like with BHR and Biomet devices) poses additional risks for folks with autoimmune disorders like me. So, I am considering meeting with Dr. Pritchett to discuss the suitability of the Synovo ceramic coated device.

I am one very happy patient. Dr Pritchett instilled confidence every step of the way and I found him to be warm and caring. Swedish Institute, where he operates, is … Read the rest
In July of 2006, a month before my wedding and in the first year of my thirties, I thought I pulled a muscle in my thigh. I let it drag on for about six months, continuing my usual recreational activities of golf, softball, and ice hockey. Finally in January of 2007 my wife forced me to see a doctor as my pain had progressed to significant locking in my hip, shooting pain down my leg and an all encompassing discomfort with all activities and sleep.
This is when I learned, at age 31, I had no cartilage in my right … Read the rest

I had L resurfacing done by Dr. Gross 5/10/2016. Of course everyone in my city (Austin, TX) advised me against it, even a ortho here in town that does them. Well it’s true that he couldn’t do my surgery anyway bcs I’m a tiny female. But once I read about Dr. Gross, I knew the trip to South Carolina would be worth it. So far my recovery has been entirely uneventful, thank goodness, because I’m going on vacation to China tomorrow. I just got my 6week followup xray (looks fine by my eye, I’m a radiologist, but … Read the rest
