The continuing controversy – Thomas P. Gross MD. 7/4/2015
Young women who desire a more functional hip replacement were recently dealt a large blow when the smaller sizes of the Birmingham Hip Resurfacing (BHR) device were withdrawn from the market by Smith Nephew Richards because the 10-year revision rate for women was higher than for men in most large registry analyses. … Read the rest
James Pritchett MD discusses the preference his patients have for hip resurfacing compared to hip replacement. No metal on metal implants were included and the follow-up averaged 11 years and up to 26 years. A polyethylene acetabular component with a ceramic or ceramic coated femoral implant was used. 270 patients. This was a statistically valid independent, blinded, paired bilateral study. More than 85% of patients with a well functioning hip replacement preferred their hip resurfacing side because of better function, feel and performance. The risks and survivorship of hip resurfacing compared to hip replacement was also better in the hand of Dr. Pritchett with a long term failure rate of less than 3.5%. The patients average age was 48 and … Read the rest

Spectrum Health along with Orthopedic Associates of Grand Rapids physician Thomas Malvitz, M.D., are among the first in Michigan to offer an alternative to hip replacement. Birmingham Hip ResurfacingTM (BHR) is offered. Instead of a total hip replacement, hip resurfacing simply shaves and caps a few centimeters of bone within the joint.
“Hip resurfacing may be an ideal alternative for younger, active patients,” said Thomas Malvitz, M.D., Orthopedic Department chairman, Spectrum Health Grand Rapids and physician with Orthopedic Associates of Grand Rapids. “The procedure enables patients to be free from pain but not as limited in their mobility and activity level as a conventional hip replacement.”
The bone-conserving approach of the BHR preserves more of the patient’s natural bone structure and … Read the rest
Toronto is North America’s 4th largest city and has the fastest growing population in need of hip surgery, yet Toronto has limited experience in hip resurfacing doctors. This has left a void for patients in urgent need of this procedure.
Recognizing this gap, Dr. Brooks at the Cleveland Clinic has been able to help a number of Ontarians receive the appropriate treatment.
Resurfacing of the hip offers several advantages compared to traditional total hip replacement in young, active patients. Much less bone is removed from the upper femur (thigh bone), activity levels are completely unrestricted after full recovery, and there are fewer problems with popping out (dislocation) or unequal … Read the rest
You should ask your hip resurfacing doctor as many of the questions that seem appropriate for your situation. Your doctor should be patient, willing to talk about what to expect and answer your questions. Having all your questions answered will give you peace of mind and will make your surgery much less stressful.

How hip arthritis is diagnosed? How BHR differs from Total Hip Replacement (THR) surgery? Dr Jason Brockwell will brief about the traditional Total Hip Replacement (THR) surgery and give a detailed explanation on hip arthritis and Birmingham Hip Resurfacing (BHR) surgery.
Professor Cobb discusses hip resurfacing in general and his experience. He also talks about the future of hip resurfacing. MSK Lab is currently involved in the H1 Hip Resurfacing Arthroplasty study for ceramic on ceramic hip resurfacing device.
The H1 implant is designed and manufactured by Embody who are also sponsoring and funding the H1 hip resurfacing study. The objective of the H1 study is to look at survivorship of the H1 implant over 10 years. Participants will be closely followed by clinical review, functional scores, and imaging.
Congratulations to Dr. Brooks of the Cleveland Clinic. He has done 3000 hip resurfacings to date. Dr. Brooks has been a supporter of Hip Resurfacing for many years and is an excellent surgeon with excellent outcomes.
Choosing the best surgeon can reduce your chances of death, complications, or other bad outcomes. This website, based on analyses of more than five million surgeries done in hospital by more than 50,000 surgeons, shows you which surgeons’ patients Checkbook found had the lowest (or highest) rates of deaths, prolonged lengths of stay (indicating likely complications), or need to be readmitted to hospital, after our risk-adjustments for patient characteristics.

When it comes to the total hip replacement using the BHR (Birmingham Hip Resurfacing) method, only the articular surfaces are being replaced. Of all the systems available on the market, BHR has the longest – independently verified – history of clinical use.
It is a bone-sparing surgery, since the femoral head is maintained in its entirety, and it is covered with a so-called cap. The second component of the prosthesis is an artificial acetabulum. The traditional large prosthesis stem inserted in the canal of the femur is not a part of this solution.
This method is called hip resurfacing or overlay prosthesis. The differences … Read the rest
