    Dear Dr De Smet,

    I am a 43 year old man living in Sweden with arthrosis in my left hip. In 2016 I did arthroscopic surgery for CAM in the hip; pain disappeared but mobility remained low.

    I have a background as a professional marathon runner, I became European Champion in 2002 while representing Finland. I stopped my elite career in 2009 but have continued to excercise. However, the hip is inhibiting me as I have low mobility, sometimes pain and cannot run on hard sufaces or hilly terain. I also have problems lacing my shoes and cutting toenails because of low mobility.

    I have been getting physioterapy for the hip regularly for six months, but mobility have not really improved. It is difficult to lift the knee above 90 degrees. I

    After doing research for many years, I belive hip resurfacing would be the best option for me. I would like to know more regrding the possibilities to get this operation performed at your clinic.

    Best regards,
    Janne Holmén

    Hej Ron!
    Jag har artros i vänster höft och har senaste året blivit väldigt stel och orörlig i höftleden. När jag leker med barnbarnen på golvet så kommer jag snart inte upp utan hjälp, svårt att ta på strumpor, knyta skorna osv. trots att jag är ok tränad resten av kroppen då jag alltid hållit igång med träning.
    Jag tror på er metod och skulle vilja komma i kontakt med en klinik som skulle kunna hjälpa mig.
