What is a Hip Resurfacing Procedure?

The concept of hip resurfacing arthroplasty (HRA)or surface replacement is an attempt to preserve the bone throughout the implantation of an artificial hip joint. In the traditional hip replacement procedure, the head of the thigh bone and the damaged socket (acetabulum) is removed. They are then replaced with a prosthesis made of metal, plastic, or ceramic. 

In hip resurfacing, the femoral head is not removed but trimmed and capped with a smooth metal covering. Only the damaged bone and cartilage within the socket are removed and replaced with a metal shell. The advantages of hip resurfacing over the traditional procedure are as follows:

  • Hip resurfacing can be easier to revise
  • There is a decreased risk of hip dislocation
  • Patients walking pattern can be more than normal
