Hip Resurfacing Performed by Expert Orthopaedic Surgeons at Florida Medical Clinic

Hip Resurfacing | Orthopaedic Surgery | Orthopedic Surgeon

Hip resurfacing is a common orthopaedic procedure that, for some individuals, can be a more advantageous alternative to a total hip replacement. During a hip replacement, a surgeon will remove the degenerated part of the hip joint, then replace the removed bone with an artificial implant. During a resurfacing procedure, however, a larger amount of the patient’s original bone is left in place, which tends to be better for active individuals. For instance, bone conservation often correlates with a greater postoperative range of motion. Additionally, patients who choose hip resurfacing over a replacement are often less likely to require revision surgery in the future.

While each candidate needs to be carefully evaluated to determine which procedure would be best for his or her unique needs, hip resurfacing may be an appropriate treatment for a wide range of orthopaedic conditions, including:

  • Osteoarthritis of the hips
  • Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI)
  • Avascular necrosis
  • Congenital hip dysplasia
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
