Every step I take now in the canyons, I thank my lucky stars I found you guys.
This is the Grand Gulch in Southeastern Utah. There is wonderful ancient rock art and beautiful cliff dwellings to be seen. It was a cold day with the temps in the 30's. The hip gave me NO problems, especially since I was carrying a bunch of gear and food in my pack.
My friend took this picture of me. Every step I take now in the canyons, I thank my lucky stars I found you guys. All the sounds and sights seem to be more enhanced when you are given a second chance.

I climbed [this mountain] 120 days after my 2nd hip resurfacing surgery.
This picture is from the top of Mount of the Holy Cross which is 14,005 feet. I climbed it on August 25, 120 days after my 2nd hip resurfacing surgery. It was a 12-mile hike and 5,700 vertical feet in elevation gain. I felt great and know that I couldn't have done it with those old hips. You guys are awesome and I will continue to send anyone I know that needs help to you.

Hip Resurfacing Patient
Two years after the procedure, I now play tennis several times a week, with no joint pain whatsoever.
I can't tell you how indebted I feel to Dr. Gross, Ms. Webb, and Midlands Orthopedics for restoring my active lifestyle. I had always been active - biking, skiing, tennis, lacrosse, etc. But, starting in 2002, I began to develop severe osteoarthritis in my left hip, and I was soon unable to run; even walking was painful.
I thought I was faced with a choice of a total hip replacement, which - since I was in my 50s and used to being active - didn't appeal to me at all, or increasing doses of pain medication, which didn't really help very much.
Fortunately, I found out about hip resurfacing and made arrangements to come to South Carolina for that procedure.
