    Hip Resurfacing
    Until now the traditional treatment of a total hip replacement, though very successful in the elderly, did not offer a good long term outcome for young active patients because of its functional constraints.

    Ordinarily patients may require a hip replacement when cartilage within the joint is lost and the bones become swollen and painful through their constant rubbing together.

    The traditional hip replacement operation involves an incision into the thigh to insert an implant comprising of a plastic cup and metal stem. The new procedure works by surgeons removing the diseased cartilage from the joint and replacing it with a new lining, comprising of a metal head and cup-like implant which prevents the bones from rubbing painfully against one another. In effect they resurface the bones in the joint rather than replacing them.

    The decision to perform a hip resurfacing operation against the traditional replacement is not solely determined by age, but is dependent on the patientís level of activity and expectations. However because younger patients are generally more active it is therefore more popular amongst them.
