    July 9, 2018 Corin MiniHip will be installed by Stefan Kreuzer. I had a fracture and subsequent pins installed May 2007. Core Decompression done in Austin TX by Shelby Carter 2011. Made it 7 years before crying uncle due to constant pain from AVN Stage 3.

    Cannot wait to have relief. Can anyone relay their 40 something install and what things can you no longer do/do with your new hip? I found one series of posts on here from a guy 3 years ago I think and he's disappeared so that gives me hope that he's not posting about issues and he's gotten on with his life. Anyone lift weights after surgery? Anyone able to do squats? Leg presses? I'm a swimmer and cyclist and I wonder if I will accelerate the revision date in the future by doing those two activities.

    I am scheduled to have my left hip replaced on July 10th. I have to make my weight loss goal of 23 lbs by the week before -- have already lost 52 lbs since January! I will get there -- pain is my motivation!

    Let’s hope so. Still a possibility it will be put back further for medical reasons.

    Getting a shiny new hip on July 5th. Having lived with an arthritic, nearly-fused joint as the norm my whole life... this is going to be weird.

    Hi - I'm scheduled for hopefully bi-lateral anterior approach total hip replacement on July 10. Doc said he would do one side first and if all went well he'd do the other side at the same time. :)
