Bone on bone, and a CT scan indicated severe arthritis with large bone spurs.  Due to my earlier surgery which had intentionally resulted in a “bent” femur and abnormal rotation, the doctor indicated I would need a THR along with a femoral osteotomy in order to straighten the femur.  Post-op I would be on crutches (zero weight bearing on operated leg) for a minimum of six weeks. Dr. Su thought I was potentially a good candidate (due to my age and general good health), and he called me to discuss my anatomy, how I walked, if I had ROM limitations, etc.  He said if I was willing to live with my current ROM limitations (the same I had lived with all my active life), he thought there was a good chance (about 80%) he could do a successful resurface. Successfully resurfaced 1/30/09.
