I had a delta motion hip surgery done last June, by Dr. Bose and so far, i am very happy with it. I have had no squeaks or other problems with it. My hip is pretty much pain free and feels almost as good as it did before the damage caused by avn. I had originally planned to get a BMHR, and during our discussion the night before surgery, Dr. Bose mentioned that if the avn extended down into the neck of the femur, a BMHR would not be possible and he would do the delta motion. As it turned … Read the Rest

I have had bi lateral THR. I had the first operation in September, and i waited for six weeks before i slept on my side with a pillow between my legs. It was awful, as i only managed to sleep for a few hours each night.
I had my second operation on January 10th, i was dreading the six weeks without sleep again. This time i put a folded pillow between my legs, and turned over onto my good hip(the first operated one) after about two weeks. I rested in that position for about ten minutes. I … Read the Rest

On September 14, 2012, I decided to become pain free by way of recommended surgery using the Direct Anterior Approach with Stryker Navigation and with your anointed hands.

Ninety-year-old Ed Tobachnik was not willing to give up those long walks with
his wife without a fight. But the severe arthritis in his hip was causing so
much pain that Ed’s active lifestyle was becoming almost impossible to maintain.
Ed saw multiple surgeons in Manhattan and was told he was too old for joint
replacement surgery. He was turned away. But Dr. Neil J. Cobelli of Montefiore’s
Adult Reconstructive/Joint Replacement Surgery department reviewed Ed’s case,
saw his special determination, and knew he was an excellent candidate for
successful hip replacement surgery. Dr. Cobelli performed Ed’s surgery, which
was followed … Read the Rest

With respect to metal ions etc, my father had two McKee – Farrar MoM THRs fitted when he was 56. These are the same metal as is used for the BHR (Birmingham Hip Resurfacing). He had them until he died 34 years later and never had any trouble with them. Nor any of the side effects people worry about from metal ions.
Obviously, anecdotes like this have no value as scientific evidence. However, it does show that problems will not necessarily arise.

“I am an active 70 year old man, but I have had my share of surgeries; heart and knee at a great medical institution, the heart surgery being very successful, but the second surgery for my knee wasn’t as successful at all. In fact, it didn’t go well, and the physical therapy that followed was even worse. My range of motion following surgery was dreadful.
But, thankfully, I found Dr. DePaolo and his staff. Even though I was not thrilled about having knee surgery again, one day after Dr. DePaolo performed my knee surgery, I had an … Read the Rest

I thought I got an easy ride yesterday but no such luck today. I went into surgery at 11am yesterday. There were a few tears during the spinal block but then I was knocked out under GA. I woke up at about 4 pm with full feeling in my operated leg and a numb good leg. Panicked a bit that they had done the wrong one!! Anyway, I was very comfortable yesterday. Had morphine on tap and just drifted in and out of consciousness most of the day. I thought everything was fine ….. then I was … Read the Rest
An attack of tuberculosis at the age of 12, left Kritika with a fused right hip, abnormal gait and difficulty walking. Six years later doctors performed a total hip replacement.
The tuberculosis infection caused the hip to fuse and made walking difficult. This type of fused hip is called ankylosis.
Surgery was performed by Dr. Murtaza Adeeb and Dr. Aniket Shah from Nashik Hospital in Pune in July 2013. The surgeons made sure the infection from the tuberculosis is under
