My name is Hip Brother Tom. I am a runner. I had a hip replacement in January of 2012. A month prior to my surgery, I started this blog to share my experience with anyone who might be facing the same fate down the road. I wanted to show my weekly recovery progress and hopeful return to running. Hence the name…hiprunner.com. As time has passed, I have opened this site to others who wanted to share their experiences. There is even a Hip Runners forum now. We are the Hip Runner’s Club. But it isn’t just about hips. In February of 2018, I also had a partial knee replacement. This site serves as a community of individuals of hip and knee replacements who are seeking advice on running again. If you find yourself getting a hip replacement or a knee replacement, and would like to become a member of the Hip Runner’s Club, we would love to have you share your story on this blog.
