surgery at Cleveland Clinic's Euclid Hospital, a beautiful site on the shores of Lake Erie
a few minutes from downtown Cleveland.  I have performed over 900 BHR's at Euclid
Hospital since the device was approved in May 2006. I have been amazed at my patients'
return to function and the strikingly low rate of complications (1 fracture, 1 infection, 1
revision), which is far less than expected with this procedure or indeed with total hip

Birmingham Hip Resurfacing

At age 45, Buzz was having a hard time getting around because of a burning pain in his leg.
Sitting in meetings was challenging, and even more devastating to his quality of life, he had
difficulty sleeping. At 6 feet 9 inches tall, Buzz had been a basketball player for the
University of California, as well as professional teams. Although he was in good health, the
combination of genetics (both grandparents had hip issues) and his active lifestyle resulted in osteoarthritis
in his hip at a young age, which limited his ability to enjoy a very full life.
