Matt’s Original Story is Posted Here: https://surfacehippy.info/matt-hip-resurfacing-dr-marchand-2014/
Today is the 5 Year Anniversary of my left Hip Resurfacing with Dr. Robert Marchand at South County Hospital in Wakefield, RI. My hip has been great. I am very active on it as well. I do a lot of cycling. I also work as a college football official in the fall and have no issues at all during the season. I do continue to do a lot of stretch, strength and stability exercises as well, and feel that plays a big role in how successful my resurfacing has been.
I had my Left Hip Resurfacing done by Dr. Robert Marchand on 4/2/14. My age was 44 at time of surgery.
I used to frequent this board quite a bit prior to my surgery and it was a great tool for me to research the procedure and build a comfort and confidence level for me to move forward with the surgery. I’ve had a few friends (who had a hip resurfacing done) that I have guided to this board to help them research the procedure as well as their doctors were pointing them toward a total hip replacement.
