Traditionally, people with hip pain, stiffness, and difficulty moving the hip joint only had one option for severe symptoms, total hip replacement. Hip Resurfacing is a newer alternative to total hip replacement for some people. Unlike hip replacement surgery, hip resurfacing does not remove the damaged bones or use hip implants. Instead, hip resurfacing resurfaces the bones in the hip joint with smooth metal. Hip resurfacing conserves hip bone. Because hip resurfacing is a less-invasive procedure, you can anticipate an easier recovery. Ideal candidates for hip resurfacing are younger people who want to return to an active lifestyle.
In addition to providing hip resurfacing, Dr. Wind's expertise also includes:
- Hip Fracture
- Birmingham Hip Resurfacing
- Hip Arthroscopy
- Minimally Invasive Hip Replacement
- Oxinium Hip (Type of Implant)
- Total Hip Replacement
