|What is a Hip Resurfacing?
With Hip Resurfacing instead of the Femur being cut through just below the head, the head of the femur is capped with a ball cap. This cap is then inserted into the cup implant which is press fitted into the prepared hip socket Indications are that this is an extremely durable solution for young and active patients that wish to keep full natural mobility and return to full active sports.
Hip resurfacing is suitable for Women below the age of 65 and Men below the age of 70 where the condition and strength of the bone is suitable.Indications for Hip Resurfacing

The ball will probably be titanium, cobalt crome plated or ceramic (there is some concern from patients as to whether the ceramic ball will break but providing the unit is properly engineered this is extremely unlikely). The advantage of ceramic is that it is both extremely robust and has a very low friction coefficient, which means a low wear rate.
Sometimes the cap may be ceramic but these in rare cases have been known to break under excessive stress conditions. One popular combination is a ceramic ball and composite cap, these are found to have less wear. Modern units can wear at the rate of 1 micron a year; some years ago wear rates were more likely 200 microns a year so great improvements have been made. One thing to be weary of is ensure that your surgeon is fitting a leading manufacturers unit not a generic copy such as those that you may receive in cheaper surgery. If it is possible find out what the surgeon will be fitting and do they fit a very good standard of unit. If you are a private patient that is paying their way you should be able to ask these questions and receive a satisfactory answer. Government health services will fit units from a standard procurement list. This list may be quite limited by the number of models and sizes, as health services seek discounts by bulk purchasing methods. In addition the prosthesis on the procurement list may be dated as it takes time for new products to be accepted. Zimmer is our organisations brand of choice simply because we consider them the best on the market, they have an excellent proven track record and are the largest makes in the market. Incidentally their units are also the most expensive but when choosing prosthesis we always choose the best.
