Unfortunately, I don't have any action photos to share about how I'm able to go back to my mountain climbing or downhill ski racing. I'm just an "average joe" who had a relatively active lifestyle until osteoarthritis got the best of my hips. It took a lot of convincing before I was ready to accept that I needed surgical intervention to alleviate my worsening hip pain. When I met with Dr. Mayman about my options, he gave me the assurance that I was looking for that I could return to the active lifestyle I once knew. After my first hip resurfacing procedure I was amazed at how fast I was able to regain the movement and range of motion with my affected hip. Within 8 months, I was back at HSS for the other side and that outcome surpassed my already high expectations with HSS and Dr. Mayman. Now at eight weeks post-surgery, I sometimes have to remind myself that I have had bilateral hip resurfacing done. The pain is long gone, and in my personal case, I'm quickly getting back to doing things I though I couldn't do anymore. Hats off to Dr. Mayman and the staff at HSS.
