is the original and largest hip resurfacing
(Conserve Plus, BHR, Cormet, ReCap, ASR) patient support group with over 9000 members worldwide. Hip resurfacing is an alternative to total hip replacement
surgery for young and active patients. Not everyone is a candidate for resurfacing, so total hip replacement is also discussed. Anyone who has had hip surgery or is interested in learning about about hip surgery options, revisions and alternatives to hip surgery is welcome to participate with other surfacehippies.
Notice: This group is not affiliated with the manufacturers of the implants, the surgeons nor the medical centers performing this procedure. Don't be afraid to share your problems or concerns; stories and concerns about revisions are welcome. There are no sacred cows or special list of surgeons promoted here.
