Hip Resurfacing Procedure
Patients who are deemed good candidates for hip resurfacing undergo surgical treatment in Abington Memorial’s high-tech orthopaedic operating suites, which utilize the laminar air flow system (circulating sterile air).
In this innovative procedure, surgeons cap the end of the thigh bone (femur) with a metal covering made of strong cobalt chromium metal. This slides neatly into a metal cup positioned in the hip socket. It’s much like the capping of a tooth, but designed to bring back stability and range of motion. It closely matches the natural anatomy of your hip joint.
