Dr. Bose's patient: Cory Foulk - endurance triathlete

Dr. Bose

Cory Foulk is an endurance triathlete who competes in races where the bike portion is always more than 100 miles and the run portion is at least the length of a marathon. By mid-2005 his hip pain was so severe that he was going to say goodbye to his 30-year competitive lifestyle. Then he got relief with the BHR Hip.

Towards the middle of 2005, it was the endgame for me. It was awful. That year I decided to say goodbye to triathlon, which I had been competing at marathon distance or greater for almost 30 years at that point. For me that was a significant change of lifestyle.

I knew that if I had a BHR done and it didnt work, then I could have a total hip replacement. I had a fallback position. It was almost because I wasnt willing to commit. I have other options in the future. It was a very conservative approach to that problem.

Birmingham Mid Head Resection Prosthesis (BMHR)

ARCH (Asian Regional Centre for Hip Resurfacing), where Dr. Bose performs Birmingham Hip Resurfacing (BHR) has been selected to be one of the very few centres worldwide to do BMHR ( Birmingham Mid Head Resection prosthesis). This will be the only centre in Asia to offer the Birmingham Mid Head Resection prosthesis.

Birmingham Mid Head Resection prosthesis is an advancement in the BHR and will expand the indications for hip resurfacing surgery. Birmingham Mid Head Resection prosthesis (BMHR) helps advanced aged patients to have Birmingham Hip Resurfacing.

The BMHR has specifically been designed for patients who have weaker bone in the head of the femur.
In the BMHR more of the weak bone is resected and is replaced with metal.
This will dramatically increase the range of patients who can have this surgery.
X-ray wise it looks almost like the BHR but the amount of bone removed is more. Thus the risk of fracture in post-op is reduced or eliminated for borderline patients.
It is technically complex to do and hence has been released only to select surgeons like Dr.Bose around the world.
