Hip resurfacing

UncategorisedComments Off on Hip resurfacing

A type of arthroplasty surgery which has been developed as an alternative to total hip replacement. Hip resurfacing includes less bone removal and is generally suitable for younger patients who suffer from non-inflammatory arthritis and who are not morbidly obese. Potential complications from hip resurfacing as compared to total hip replacement include femoral neck fractures, aseptic loosening and metal wear.
