Hi everyone, I’m a 62 yo male runner with severe AO in the right hip. After a year on the wait list I finally will have my pre-op meeting with my surgeon in a couple of days (Apr 11). After that it will probably be close to a year before the surgery takes place. The surgeon is highly recommended by the sports medicine clinic that referred me – as a surgeon who understands the needs of athletes. However, I am wondering if there is any emerging consensus about the best type of hip implant for someone like me who hopes to remain active at a number of sports, including running. What do I need to be sure to ask the surgeon to ensure that we arrive at the best solution for my particular circumstances?
I’ll definitely continue reviewing posts and links on this site, but meanwhile please let me know if you have any advice for my pre-op meeting. Thanks!!
