Hip

Resurfacing

As with a total hip replacement, this procedure is sought after by patients who have been experiencing chronic hip pain due to a variety of factors.  For example:

    • Osteoarthritis
    • Rheumatoid Arthritis
    • Arthritis due to trauma
    • Sports injuries

The main difference with this procedure and a total hip replacement is that in a hip resurfacing procedure, we do not replace the femoral head of the patient.  We do place a medal insert in the acetabulum, just as in a total hip replacement.  The femoral head is “resurfaced” and trimmed so that a metal ‘cap’ is fitted over the damaged bone.


Anesthesia: Regional
OR time: 2:30 to 3:00 hours
