Group Description

Hip resurfacing and hip replacement spoken here. Surfacehippy (Surface Hippy) is the original, largest and most active hip resurfacing (patient support group with over 9500 members worldwide. Hip resurfacing is an alternative to total hip replacement surgery for young and active patients suffering from debilitating hip pain due to arthritis, trauma, avascular necrosis (AVN), hip dysplasia (DDH), Perthes disease, or femoroacetabular impingement (FAI). Discussion includes specific devices such as Wright and Microport Conserve Plus, Birmingham Hip (BHR), Corin Comet, ReCap, Depuy ASR, surgeons and hospitals offering hip resurfacing. Not everyone is a candidate for resurfacing, so total hip replacement is also discussed. Anyone who has had hip surgery or is interested in learning about about hip surgery options, revisions and alternatives to hip surgery is welcome to participate with other surfacehippies.

Notice: This group is not affiliated with the manufacturers of the implants, the surgeons nor the medical centers performing this procedure. Don't be afraid to share your problems or concerns; stories and concerns about revisions are welcome. There are no sacred cows or special list of surgeons promoted here.
All opinions in this forum are solely those of the post's author; the accuracy or veracity of posts are not independently verified. Only a surgeon can diagnose and advise you on your specific condition.
