I am sorry to hear you are having problems with your hip resurfacing. I think the national registries and medical studies certainly support a positive use of hip resurfacing. http://www.surfacehippy.info/nationalregistries.php
I am sorry you are among the 6 % of folks having problems, but there are just as many problems with THR also - either MOM or ceramic or plastic/metal. There are no perfect hip devices. We all had them and then either thru disease, arthritis, accidents or too much use - lost the original equipment. Even the original equipment did not last a lifetime - so why should we be surprised man made hips don't sometimes last a lifetime.
The experienced surgeons series show a 99% retention rate and the national registries show a 96% rate at 10 years. There are also many BHRs out there since 1997 that are functioning perfectly well. I have a few stories posted.
So I am sorry about your problems and hope you can find a solution, but telling people that hip resurfacing is not really a good option is ONLY YOUR OPINON based on your experience. There are over 160,000 folks with BHRs world wide that are working well and causing no problems. There are also many Cormet, Wright C+ and Biomets placed many years ago working well.
I just need to always have a reality check when people with problems start posting. I can understand your hurt, anger and frustration when you have a resurfacing not working properly for you - but you are in the minority. We welcome you to help support you, but I have to tell new visitors that hip resurfacing is still an excellent option for many people. Don't be scared off by negative press, people with problems and people with ASR or certain THR devices. Do your homework, but make sure you read actual national registries and read real medical studies from top surgeons that have done many thousands of hip resurfacings.
Please understand the cautions about MOM implants are for THR total hip replacement devices. Even the recent FDA information explains that hip resurfacing is still a viable solution for the right candidates.
