Hip Surgery Recovery

On September 7th 2010, I underwent total hip resurfacing for a severely compromised right hip. At five months post-op I am almost fully healed and doing remarkably well (full healing occurs at six months post-op). I began rehab on my own in the Pilates studio to regain the strength and flexibility lost from the invasive nature of having a total hip replacement / resurface procedure. I am convinced the specific nature and detailed precision of our Pilates movements got me on track as fast as Dr. Gross would allow.

This is truly an amazing surgery when performed in the hands of an extraordinary surgeon.

I have since worked with another of Dr. Gross's patients in her 60's who had the exact same procedure as I and is also realizing a totally successful outcome. I enjoy specializing my work with recipients of total hip, hip resurfacing and hip arthroscopic surgeries. The knowledge I have gained from my own real life experience is invaluable!

Please feel free to contact me on any subject matter pertaining to hip surgery. My contacts, experiences and knowledge I have gained along the way may help you in finding some answers!

I'm a 63 year old woman and has successfully recovered from a hip resurface one year ago! I have worked with Aimee Levesque over seven years and extensively during the recovery phase of my hip.  Pilates means core strength and endurance which translates into torque, power, and flexibility in sports.
