It's official, will be undergoing bilateral hip resurfacing surgery in late July. Doc is going to install the Cormet implants in both hips, surgery will take around 3 hrs. I chose resurfacing as opposed to total implant due to my stats, mainly my young age---in osteoarthritis years (g)..I'm 51 (male, solid bones, no metal allergies, etc). This procedure preserves more of the bone, something to consider in the event I outlive the life of the implants and require further replacement down the road..Thought I would pass along an excellent patient site on hip implants I stumbled on.
and a sister site for THR (total hip replacement):
