    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
