Hi all, been reading this list with interest, the arthritic pain in my hip I currently have is associated with an *old* motorcycle accident, and the bone structure is quite good, so a full replacement would seem ( after discussions with a nother surgeon ) unneccessary. His suggestion was to live with the pain <grimace> ( and lack of movement etc etc etc ...). rather than replace in now.

So, after searching on the dreaded web, I found the Birmingham Hip Resurfacing concept, seems exactly what I want <smile>.

Now to the questiion, has anyone had a BHR in Melbourne, Australia ? there are one or two here I think, and if so, could any of you suggest a surgeon to perform the operation ? There are several that operate out of the Avenue, and one or two in Glen Waverley but it all seems like a bit of a lucky dip at times <smile> any pointers would be useful,

thanks for taking the time to read this,

cheers, Ray

P.s eith reply to the list or ( if there are any replies <grin> ) , thanks.
