Have you ever wondered what your life will be like following hip resurfacing?
Read what our patients are enjoying now that they are pain-free!
“Since my surgery on 3/31/08, as of 6/30/11, I have run an additional 2,240 miles, together with an additional 3,952 equivalent miles on the stairs and elliptical machines. I would recommend Dr. Rogerson and the Birmingham Hip Resurfacing to anyone requiring hip replacement. Since my surgery I have been pain free, and back to normal in all of my activities.”- William H.
“I work as a personal trainer, life coach, hiking and snowshoe guide, while skiing probably 40 days a year living here in Park City, Utah. As a trainer I’ve learned how much the hip socket effects the back, knees etc. I’ve used that knowledge to help my clients improve their fitness and health. I can’t tell you how much getting my hip resurfaced has restored my health to the quality of life I crave. I’m so very glad I discovered Dr. Rogerson.”- Kent M.
“The outdoor stair climb (126 steps) is like the best outdoor gym. What a workout and great therapy. The hip has been great. I don’t even know it’s been resurfaced!”– Rich H.
“I recently earned my PADI Divemaster rating – all of my dive training and experience has occurred after you resurfaced my left hip. I’m riding my road bicycle 100+ miles a week. No pain or limitations – in fact, I’m thinking of having you resurface all of my joints. Thank you for what you have done to enhance the quality of my life.”– Ron A.
“Since I have had my hips resurfaced, my husband and I have traveled a lot. I have walked more than I ever thought possible, even before I had hip problems! From the Great Wall of China, to Greek Islands, to Germany where the castles are either on hill tops or in valleys, I have been able to walk to all of the sites and enjoy everything the trip has had to offer. Thank you so much to Dr. Rogerson and the team!”– Gale B.
“I showed the state of my recovery by a rope-skipping demo—crisscrosses front and back, double skips. I’ve also been taking ballroom classes for many months, so I’m doing outstandingly at this point. I run about ten miles a week, lift twice a week. If I can find time free, I’m looking forward to volleyball Monday nights again.”– Richard J.
“Dr. Rogerson is one of the last of the true master clinicians. He spends all the time necessary to answer all of his patients questions and address all of their concerns. He leads a team of passionate and compassionate clinicians and support staff that sets patients at ease. Dr. Rogerson raises the bar for physicians and surgeons. As a RN I’d be happy to work with the likes of Dr. Rogerson and his team. As a patient, I’m grateful for his expertise and the expertise of his entire team.”– Eric B. 2015
“It has been 4 years and each and every chance we get to travel, we do. It has given us the ability to attend the events in our children’s lives, where ever they are.”– Curtis W.
“Dr. Rogerson performed resurfacing on my right hip June 23rd of 2014. Played racquetball with my oldest son at a competitive level on December 24th and ran outside on December 29th. Both were an emotional experience! First saw Dr. Rogerson and his amazing staff in April of 2014 in what I thought was a last ditch effort to find someone who would still entertain a resurface vs. THR of my right hip after being told by the 2 largest “gigs” in town that “we don’t do that anymore”. I and my family were thankful to have met Dr. R. His skill, confidence and above all his compassion resonates through his entire office offering to his patients an experience 2nd to none!”– David R.
“If you need hip replacement, I strongly recommend that you investigate / consider Dr John Rogerson and hip resurfacing. I had my right hip resurfaced Aug ’12 at age 52. Two and one-half years later, I could not be more pleased with the result. I lead a very physically active life including intense cardio and weight lifting. You can’t ask for a better Orthopedist for hip resurfacing using Smith &Nephew’s Birmingham Hip Resurfacing (BHR) System. I live 4 hours from Madison, WI — so I did it as a medical tourist. His treatment protocol included 2 days in the hospital and 4 days of concentrated physical therapy in a residential (i.e. out of hospital) setting. My wife (caregiver) stayed at the residential facility while I was in the hospital. He partners with physical therapists who have been refining his physical therapy regime with him for over 10 years — the benefits of that partnership proved themselves as I very quickly was back on my feet and very quickly, steadily improving.”– Karl R.

“Before I had my Birmingham Hip Resurfacing procedure, I was not able to do any activities which I wanted. I wanted to be an avid golfer, I wanted to take walks with my wife. So, before my procedure I went for a walk with my wife and after about a half of a block I told her I couldn’t go any further and asked her to go back and get the car to bring me back home. Now we can walk as far as we want. Last fall, 2 years after surgery, we went for an eight mile walk. That was amazing. It feels wonderful to be able to do the activities I had done before and do them pain free.”– Luke W. 2015
“In June of 2007 Dr Rogerson did a hip resurfacing (BHR). Thank heavens for his skills. Prior to this surgery I could hardly walk!! I always navigated a room by searching for the nearest chair!! I was in a lot of pain and activities were not possible. Then I met this kind Doctor and his Amazing team and Wow what a difference! The first night after surgery I stood up. No Pain. The post op time was shortened because of the therapy his knowledgeable team provided. They get you into the pool quickly which really helps you move again. I would recommend Dr Rogerson and his Team to anyone. They are the Best! Thank you for giving me back my mobility. I now hike. Paddleboard bike play tennis and am so comfortable. Also I now chase after our grandson. Such fun!”- Chris F. 2015
“The “A- Team” of clinical care. Dr. Rogerson and his staff set the bar for clinical care.”- Eric B. 2015
“I was your 192nd Hip resurfacing patient clear across the state, near Sheboygan. You resurfaced my hip in August of 2007. In April of 2010, I began counting the miles I ran each month. From then until now, I totaled 1,469.05 miles”– Marty F. August 2014
“I think of you often, and can never repay you for the quality of life you have given me!– Bryan J. August 2014
“Still barefoot and slalom waterskiing, and coaching and playing soccer! I actually started learning backward deepwater barefoot starts this summer.”- John B. August 2014
“I’m so glad that I found Dr. Rogerson- his team is a class A act! This is a really GREAT operation.”- Jean M. 2007
“Dr Rogerson and his team are amazing people. I had my hip resurface 10/2012 and it gave me my life back! I am back playiing golf, racquetball and jumping my horse – totally pain free. But more impressive than the surgery was the quality and care of the people, led by Doc!
Does not seem like it would be possible to say this about a surgery, but, the entire experience, from the first consultation to the two year check up, have been something that I will always treasure. Amazing results – more amazing people.”- Bob T.
“Surgery last September I’m running I’m swimming wake boarding and playing tennis the left hip is feeling good. Thanks Doc!!!”- Rob D.
