The Surface Hippy Website was conceived and designed by Patricia Walter.
Patricia had her hip resurfaced in March 2006 with Dr. De Smet of Belgium. She
felt there was a need for a website to help people learn about hip resurfacing.
She knew first hand that it was a wonderful solution for a hip replacement and
wanted to help others learn about hip resurfacing. Visit

Surface Hippy is not financially controlled by any medical companies, doctors
or hospitals. Patricia maintains the website and adds information daily. The
website is a collection of information to help people learn about hip
resurfacing. Surface Hippy is a patient to patient resource.
Many hip resurfacing patients have provided their personal
Hip Stories so perspective patients can learn from their experiences. They
explain why they chose hip resurfacing, their surgeries, the hip resurfacing
device they received, what surgeon they chose, their hospital experiences and
their recoveries. Many hip resurfacing patients return to the sports they love –
