About Hip Resurfacing

This information is intended for general information only and should not be considered as medical advice on the part of Health-Tourism.com. Any decision on medical treatments, after-care or recovery should be done solely upon proper consultation and advice of a qualified physician.

What is Hip Resurfacing Surgery
Hip resurfacing surgery is a surgical procedure in which a metal cap is placed over the femoral head and a metal cup is placed in the pelvis, which replaces the connecting surfaces of the hip joint. It is an alternative to total hip replacement.

In hip resurfacing surgery, the amount of bone that is removed is lesser than that in a hip replacement surgery. If the hip resurfacing parts are required to be replaced eventually, there is an adequate amount of bone that is left to conduct a hip replacement surgery. The risk of hip dislocation is also less.

How is Hip Resurfacing Performed?

  • An incision is made on the side of the high through which the surgeon can view the femoral head and socket.
  • The femoral head is removed from the socket.
  • The femoral head is shaped with powered instruments to make it fit into the new metal surface.
  • The cap is then fitted into the femoral head and fixed in place with a small peg that is attached into the bone.
  • A metal cup replaces the hip socket.
  • A reamer is used to remove cartilage from the socket and shape it so that the artificial socket fits in.
  • The metal socket is then fitted in position and remains in place due to friction, until the bone grows and attaches to the metal.
  • The incision is closed with stitches and covered with a bandage.

How to Prepare for Hip Resurfacing?
  • The patient is physically examined to ensure that the patient is in a good condition to undergo surgery.
  • The patient may also be required to meet the physical therapist who will look after the patient’s rehabilitation. During this, the patient is fully examined to measure the patient’s current level of pain and to determine the strength and movement of the hips. Then, the patient is required to learn some exercises that needs to be done after the surgery. The patient will also be taught how to use crutches or a walker.
  • The patient may be required to donate some blood before 3 to 5 weeks. In case the patient needs a blood transfusion during the surgery, the patient’s own blood can be provided.
  • The patient’s bone should be adequately healthy to support the metal cap.
  • Certain medication that the patient is taking may be stopped 10 days prior to the surgery.
  • The patient should inform the doctor about any ailments or medical conditions.
  • Smoking should be stopped at least a couple of weeks before the surgery to ensure quick healing and a successful result.

This will help the patient to move around.
