I have just been for my one year check up on my bilateral hip resurfacing and everything looks perfect. I had reached the point where I had constant pain and stiffness in both hips that was affecting every aspect of my working and private life. I am a dressage instructor so having functioning hips is crucial.
I had been told that I had to have a THR but felt I was too young and active and fortunately met someone who had had a HR done by Dr. Gross. Dr. Gross told me I could do them both in the same week which would mean less time off work and I had them done in April 2012. I started back riding in October and was back to full strength by January 2013.
My hips feel wonderful, pain free and mobile, and I have not been able to ride this well for probably the past eight year. As a result of properly functioning hips I have far less lower back pain. I am so grateful to Dr. Gross and Nurse Webb for giving me my life back.
