Hip Resurfacing (Birmingham)

Hip Resurfacing is a procedure approved for individuals 60 years and younger who have severe arthritis of the hip. The goal of the procedure is to minimize the amount of bone loss and to load the hip bone in a more anatomic or normal manner. There is some evidence to suggest that the density of the bone is better preserved with resurfacing and may make future surgery easier. The longer term results are not available but results at 12 years are encouraging. In large databases in Europe and Australia the results of hip resurfacing may be better in certain patients than hip replacement.
