The injured hip joint is replaced with a hip resurfacing surgery. When the joint is severely injured it causes pain in the movement of the femoral head (thigh bone). During the procedure the surgeon slits to gain access to the hip bone and the thigh bone. A smooth metal covering is used to cover up the femoral bone. The injured bone is eliminated with the help of the hip bone socket thereby compensating it with the help of the metal shell. In the earlier days, a surgeon used to remove the entire femoral head and didn't even top it with a metal covering. The socket of the hip bone was completely replaced. A hip resurfacing surgery is used in different kinds of medical troubles like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteonecrosis, damage of the hip joint, etc. When the hip joint is severely damaged then it can interfere in your daily activities. A hip resurfacing will relieve you from your pain and improvise the movement of the joint thereby improving the quality of your life. A surgeon recommends you to undergo this surgery only pain medications and the walking devices fails to help you in your walking.

Birmingham hip resurfacing surgery is an alternative to the total hip replacement surgery, which is indicated in patients with advanced arthritis of the hip. The latter could be performed as an anterior hip replacement or posterior hip replacement.
Both hip resurfacing and total hip replacement procedures are, in a way, a form of hip replacement. In Birmingham hip resurfacing surgery, the femoral head of the bone is not removed.
Instead, it is trimmed and capped with a metal covering and the damaged bone is replaced with a metal cup. In total hip replacement surgery (anterior hip replacement and posterior hip replacement), the femoral head and neck of the bone are removed and replaced with a metal ball and a metal stem.
Patients with advanced arthritis of the hip are recommended to undergo hip resurfacing surgery. Hip resurfacing is not suitable for all patients. Patients below 60 years who have strong healthy bones are allowed to undergo hip resurfacing surgery. Patients with femoral neck cysts, severe bone loss, and osteoporosis are not suitable for this procedure.
