Patricia is an early Baby Boomer and at 61 needed a new hip. While she was searching the internet and learning about hip replacement, she gathered a great deal of useful information that she wanted to share with other people needing hip replacement. Patricia was lucky and was able to have a Hip Resurfacing  which is an FDA approved procedure that conserves the femur bone. Patricia Did not have insurance and could not afford a hip replacement in the US in 2006, so she went to Belgium. Dr. De Smet was and still is one of the most experienced hip resurfacing surgeons in the world. Back then the cash price for hospital and doctor in Belgium was about $6000 compared to $30,000 +++ in the US. She wrote a book about her adventure and Birmingham Hip Resurfacing. It is available as a free download called BELGIUM AND MY BHR.

About Patricia's Websites

Surface Hippy about hip resurfacing at

Surface Hippy is Patricia’s largest website. She developed the website in 2005 just before hip hip resurfacing. She wanted to share information about hip resurfacing since very few surgeons were offering the option. Surface Hippy continued to grow and is one of the largest patient information websites. It features a discussion group about hip resurfacing.

 I am not a professional accordionist, I am just an oldster having fun with old music. I hope to bring a smile to a few faces.  I have made over 274 videos on my YouTube Channel

I played accordion most of my life. Started in 1951 when I was 6 years old. During the 80’s and 90’s, my ex and I played as a duo known as the Good Time Two. We parted ways in 2008 and I did not play much after that.

Then several years ago I bought a Roland FR 4X Digital Accordion, which I love. Also have purchased a couple acoustic accordions since they are fun to play too. I hope you enjoy my music.

A Poet's Corner features the poetry and art of Patricia Walter

The Six Dog Studio was my original website I developed in 1999. It featured many of my paintings and photos. Since then, I have written a large number of poems about animals, cats, dogs, friends, love, life and nature. So I developed A Poet’s Corner to feature all my work. I became an artist when I was fifty years old and painted about 450 paintings. Each painting seemed to be telling me a story, so I started to write poetry about the paintings.
