Hip Resurfacing remains an excellent procedure. Prof McMinn and Mr Ronan Treacy’s previous design the BIRMINGHAM HIP™ Resurfacing (BHR™) (1) proudly demonstrates an ODEP 13A* rating in the UK. (2)
Restrictions in size range and gender application in many countries relating to Metal on Metal Hip Resurfacing, limit the use of these implants to males, and component sizes from 48 to 62mm only.
JointMedica and others, are exploring alternative materials to Metal on Metal for use in Hip Resurfacings.
A CGI image of JointMedicas unique monoblock polyethylene Hip Resurfacing design (PHR™), developed with the support of Innovate UK. (3)
Encouraging results with modern polyethylene supports JointMedica’s hypothesis that Highly Cross-linked Polyethylene could offer advantages over hard on hard articulations in the longer term (4).
Professor Walter of Australia explains the ReCerf Hip Resurfacing Device he used for Anton Constantine. The video explains why hip resurfacing is more bone conserving that a THR. Anton also talks about his surgery.

Biography: Prof Bill Walter
Bill Walter, Orthopaedic Surgeon, is the Professor of Orthopaedics and Traumatic Surgery at the University of Sydney. He supervises PhD students, Masters students and medical students. In 2012 Professor Walter was the President International Society for Technology in Arthroplasty and hosted the annual meeting in Sydney where over 500 scientific papers were presented, on topics such as robotics and technology in Orthopaedic Surgery. He served as Chairman of the department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the Mater Hospital from 2011 to 2014.
Gait after Birmingham Hip Resurfacing an age-matched controlled prospective study
Patients undergoing HRA improved their preoperative gait pattern of a significant limp to a symmetrical gait at high speeds and on inclines, almost indistinguishable from normal controls. HRA with an approved device offers substantial functional gains, almost indistinguishable from healthy controls.

Modern metal-on-metal (MoM) hip resurfacing arthroplasty (HRA), while achieving good results with well-orientated, well-designed components in ideal patients, is contraindicated in women, men with head size under 50 mm, or metal hypersensitivity. These patients currently have no access to the benefits of HRA. Highly crosslinked polyethylene (XLPE) has demonstrated clinical success in total hip arthroplasty (THA) and, when used in HRA, potentially reduces metal ion-related sequelae. We report the early performance of HRA using a direct-to-bone cementless mono-bloc XLPE component coupled with a cobalt-chrome femoral … Read the rest

A member of the JointMedica team was privileged to have attended the inaugural Pathways Conference, held in London on 4 October 2019. Details of this independent scientific meeting can be found at the following link. https://www.pathways-conference.org/
This meeting coincided with the 50th anniversary of JRI Orthopaedics. Founded in 1969 by orthopaedic surgeon Ronald Furlong. It is acknowledged within the orthopaedic industry that JRI was the first company to offer a primary total hip replacement implant with Hydroxyapatite coating. https://jri-ltd.com/
This event was chaired by Prof Justin Cobb, Chair of Orthopaedics and clinical lead at Imperial College, London. Prof Cobb also serves as a civilian advisor in orthopaedics to the Royal Air Force and is Orthopaedic Surgeon to Her Majesty the

I’m now week 26 post operation as I write this and I am walking normally and my physical life is Id say back to where it was c3 years ago
I have adhered to the protocols of physiology and tissue recovery following major trauma /surgery as follows
Effectively when a person exercises – particularly resistance weights – you are micro tearing the muscles –hence whilst its Ok to be mobile and do the Physio stretches – it’s not good to over stress the body in the first 6 weeks post operation … Read the rest
First ceramic on ceramic resurfacing of Dr.De Smet in Johannesburg Rosaecres hospital South-Africa
This lady walked with 2 crutches for long time before her surgery. After two weeks with all kind of disasters not related with surgery but delaying the rehabilitation, her older grandsons (seven and ten) stopped believing that she could ever abandon the crutches. To cheer them up and make them laugh, she decided to take a “funny walk” along the hallway of their house.… Read the rest

Dr. De Smet places his first ReCerf hip resurfacing device on March 3, 2019 in Johannasburg South Africa. ReCerf is a new type of ceramic on ceramic hip resurfacing device. The traditional standard hip resurfacing device is metal on metal like the BHR , Birmingham Hip Resurfacing Device, the Wright C+ and Biomet. New types of devices are being developed which will be used with all good candidates, even women and small men.
