My story is pretty typical, active, bad hip at a young age, at 33 while doing a lot of running developed pain.  At doctors advice put it off for almost 15 years, thus deteriorating hip more.  Once I could no longer put up with pain started doing research and found Dr. Amstutz.

Next thurs surgery for my left hip w Dr. Amstutz, hopefully itll be a resurf, My femoral head looks "cysty" after 10 years of wait.  I put off as long as possible cause traditional Ortho surgeon thinking was I was too young for THR, I'm now 46.
