Hip Resurfacing is a modern alternative to hip replacement, only the worn out surfaces of the hip joint are replaced. It is a bone preserving operation as most of the head and neck portion of the top end of the femur bone is retained. The head portion alone is sculpted to a cylindrical stump and not chopped off. A metal ball like cap is fixed with cement over this stump. Hip Resurfacing is intended to produce pain relief in young and middle aged active patients with hip arthrosis.Hip Resurfacing is not advised in advanced bone loss, altered anatomy, limb length discrepancy, women of child bearing age, kidney disease and metal allergy. Patients younger than 55 to 60 years are the ideal candidates.Success rate- 80-98%.
