Nowadays it`s routine surgery and material and things getting better.
I told my patients to live as you like but take care of your new hip like it is your wife or motorcycle

If you have high demand on movement and activity i prefer the anterior approach. Wish is more resistent to dislocation.
Uncemented technic and low friction head joint with either highly crosslinked polyetylhen or ceramic liner material in the pelvis with at least 32 mm diameter.

Hip resufacing is more controversial but works fine if you have the right dimensions and bone quality.

I would say the most important thing is the Surgeun, chose the one with a good repetation and experience.

Take time with the rehab thing, everythings want to heal in a good way.

Take care

Well, I'm 10 weeks with my new hip, and it still blows my mind how easy it's been. I have a long way to go to get back to full strength, but I got back on my bike last weekend, and I almost cried it felt so good! No pain at all!
Gonna ride to work tomorrow - first full day of spring
Life is good!
There is no problem so big you can't make it worse
