"I feel like a new man after the surgery" - Birmingham Hip Resurfacing patient Joseph Merendino.
As a police officer who needs to help people and has to be active through out the day, there is never a moment that he isn't doing something physically. His hip symptoms kept getting worse and then went to see Dr. Lopez. "Now I feel great. I jump out and I am in the action. There's no stretching, no pain... It's amazing."
People from all over the United States come to see Dr. Lopez and his team because they understand how important it is for people to get back to work and play, pain-free. The hip resurfacing and hip replacement experts at Midwest Sports Medicine specialize in helping people get full recovery without surgery. Sometimes therapy isn't enough and the latest techniques in medicine and surgery can be the best option.
The trademarked Birmingham Hip Resurfacing system (BHR) was introduced in 1997 as an alternative to total hip replacement. This bone-conserving procedure, combined with the virtual elimination of dislocation make BHR ideal for younger, more active patients. Dr. Lopez trained in England to perform the BHR procedure.
