Patients with advanced arthritis of the hip may be candidates for hip resurfacing (hip resurfacing arthroplasty). Our orthopedic surgeons will work with you to determine the procedure that is right for you.
Hip resurfacing, the femoral head is trimmed and capped with a smooth metal covering. The damaged bone and cartilage within the socket is removed and replaced with a metal shell, just as in a traditional total hip replacement. A comprehensive evaluation by one of our orthopedic surgeons will help you determine if you are a good candidate for hip resurfacing.
