I just had hip resurfacing surgery done last Friday, January 20, at HSS hospital in New York. Dr. Edwin Su performed the surgery. He’s done about 4,500 hip resurfacing surgeries. I flew to New York from Georgia specifically to see Dr. Su. I was referred by another runner. I’m a 67-year-old endurance runner. Multiple marathons and Ironman Triathlons. Dr. Su said he would have me back and running any distance I wished. I am one-week post-op and ahead of schedule. Walking with a cane. The joint pain is gone. The surgery pain took 4 days to pass. Now have some stiffness from hip surgery. Stretching and PT will take care of the stiffness. Plan to take 3 months of walking, then begin biking, and begin jogging in 6 months. Could do all this sooner if I wished but want to be conservative. The material used is an alloy of cobalt chromium made by Smith & Nephew in England. Only downside is expense. Dr. Su does not accept Medicare although the hospital HSS does. HSS is the number 1 rated orthopedic hospital in the U.S.
