Hip Resurfacing has been developed as a surgical alternative to total hip replacement (THR). The procedure consists of placing a cobalt-chrome metal cap, which is hollow and shaped like a mushroom, over the head of the femurwhile a matching metal cup (similar to what is used with a THR) is placed in theacetabulum (Pelvis Socket), replacing the articulating surfaces of the patient's hip joint and removing very little bone compared to a THR. When the patient moves the hip, the movement of the joint induces synovial fluid to flow between the hard metal bearing surfaces lubricating them when the components are placed in the correct position.


The Potential Advantages of Hip Resurfacing

  • Less Bone Removal (Bone Preservation)
  • A reduced chance of Hip Dislocation due to a relatively larger femoral head size (giving the patient has an anatomically correct femoral head size)
  • Easier Revision surgery for any subsequent revision to a THR device because a surgeon will have more original bone stock available.
