Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Perthes Hip Worn Out

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
I'm looking for some assistance for a friend. He is 40. Strong as a bull, normal weight but had perthes as a child which was picked up late. Now hip giving pain at night and likely worn out. Wants to be active, skiing, cycling etc. Has private insurance and is willing to spend if needs be, not in any particular rush.

Who are the best surgeons for hips / this kind of thing in people's experience?

A friend had a new hip by this guy and swears by it... https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Derek_McMinn

He pioneered a new type of hip replacement that the NHS then adopted and subsequently mucked up by buying cheap bits. If you go for the real thing from McMinn then I gather it’s the dog’s whatsits.

Paul Gaston did mine, best guy in Scotland imo.

Specialty is younger more active patients, he skis and cycles himself so understands your needs.

Appreciate it's not local......

We asked the same question here a while back and as a result, Mrs NBT also used Derek McMinn. As mentioned above he developed a technique called Hip Resurfacing, which wasn't appropriate for Mrs NBT - and which the NHS no longer offer, possibly related to the issues mentioned by @foxtrotzulu
