Benefits of Hip Resurfacing
One of the many benefits of hip resurfacing is that it keeps more of your healthy bone intact. The worn area is simply resurfaced, not removed. The size and shape of your natural hip is more closely replicated, with the opportunity for more stability, more natural motion, and less chance of dislocation.
Besides bone conservation, the implant itself is highly durable, which may make for a longer lasting implant.
Time is on Your Side
Chances are, you want to return to dancing, hiking, running, or other activities as soon as possible. With hip resurfacing, average recovery times are approximately two to three weeks, without the “hip precautions” necessary with the traditional approach to hip replacement. Of course, you’ll want to follow your surgeon’s orders to the letter to help ensure a successful recovery.
