Hip Re-surfacing

Hip Re-surfacing

Hip replacement surgery includes hip resurfacing. In order to relieve hip stiffness and discomfort brought on by osteoarthritis and other disorders, implants are employed. The implants replace the broken bone and tissue, enabling more fluid mobility. The greatest candidates for hip resurfacing are men under 60.

The femoral head is not removed during hip resurfacing; rather, it is trimmed and covered in a smooth metal cap. Similar to a conventional complete hip replacement, the worn-out bone and cartilage within the socket are removed and replaced with a metal shell. At ten years, there is a 90–95 percent likelihood that a conventional hip replacement will still be good and functional. The group of young patients—possibly between 40 and 55 years old—who have a significantly greater failure rate is the exception.

In the majority of cases, failed metal-on-metal hip resurfacing prostheses can be effectively corrected without requiring a total hip replacement. It is vital to have in-depth understanding about corresponding prosthesis. For the reconstruction of the acetabulum or the femur, polyethylene prosthesis are frequently required.
