International surgeon series and registry data have demonstrated positive outcomes and long-term survival of the Birmingham Hip Resurfacing (BHR) implant. We report the 5 to 10-year results from a single center in the U.S.
…Conclusions: BHR demonstrated excellent survivorship and clinical outcomes at 5 to 10 years in selected patients. As compared with total hip arthroplasty, the use of the BHR may provide highly active patients with clinically important advantages in postoperative activity as well as a greater likelihood of remaining highly active. Continued follow-up is necessary to validate long-term BHR outcomes…

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
Published on Dec 17, 2017 – BHR The Past and the Future of Hip Resurfacing
Dr Edwin Su takes a look at the Birmingham Hip Resurfacing (BHR) System’s 20 year history and outcome data from implant survival rates to opportunities for patients. In his closing slide Dr Su states that hip resurfacing can have advantages of THR including bone preservation, greater stability and a high activity level. He also says that hip resurfacing is alive and well for selected patients. There may only be a few surgeons performing hip resurfacing, but those who have experience with it are still strong advocates.
On 30th July 1997, Mr McMinn performed the world’s first Birmingham Hip Resurfacing (BHR) operation. Two decades later, we are celebrating the success of this bone-conserving procedure, pioneered by Mr McMinn, with the people whose lives have been changed by BHR surgery.
The video and photos that patients have sent in to celebrate 20 Years of Hip Resurfacing has been eye opening and amazing. We couldn’t include everyone in our longer in depth video so we created this shorter and snappier piece to give you a feel of the immense variety of activities that our patients enjoy after their procedures.
On 30th July 1997, Mr McMinn performed the world’s first Birmingham Hip Resurfacing (BHR) operation. Two decades later, we are celebrating the success of this bone-conserving procedure with the people whose lives have been changed by BHR surgery.
In this video, you will hear testimony from a range of Mr McMinn’s BHR patients over the years – and we are delighted to hear how the BHR has had such a positive impact on patients’ lives.
Thank you to everyone who took the time out to record and send in their video clips, we really do appreciate it!
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
BBC Watchdog reports on the Birmingham Hip Resurfacing (BHR) implant, first aired on August 2nd 1999. Derek McMinn MD FRCS, the pioneering orthopaedic surgeon behind the BHR, talks about hip resurfacing as the bone conserving alternative to total hip replacement (THR).
Professional Badminton player and coach David Eddy talks about how his hip resurfacing has enabled him to remain active and go on to win several competitions around the world.
Golfer Clement Gibson has a total hip replacement on one side and a hip resurfacing on the other. He says that the resurfaced hip is more comfortable and he is able to do more with it in comparison to his replacement hip.
PHOENIX – An Arizona federal judge has dismissed without prejudice a Birmingham Hip Resurfacing action filed against Smith & Nephew, ruling that the plaintiff failed to adequately assert facts supporting her allegations that the manufacturer violated federal regulations…… Read the rest
August 1, 2016 A Wisconsin federal judge has awarded Smith & Nephew Inc. summary judgment in a case involving its Birmingham Hip Resurfacing implant, finding the plaintiffs failed to present expert testimony that the device was defective.
What is a Summary Judgement:
A final decision by a judge, upon a party’s motion, that resolves a lawsuit before there is a trial. The party making the motion marshals all the evidence in its favor, compares it to the other side’s evidence, and argues that there are no “triable issues of fact.” Summary judgment is awarded if the undisputed facts and the law make it clear that it would be impossible for the opposing party to prevail if the matter were to proceed … Read the rest
Clinical and Functional Outcomes of the Birmingham Hip Resurfacing System by Cecilia Pascual-Garrido, MD; Brandon L. Morris, MD; Michael R. Dayton, MD
This study reported the outcomes of patients treated with the Birmingham Hip Resurfacing System (Smith & Nephew, Memphis, Tennessee) to identify the prevalence of complications and failures. A retrospective review of 202 patients (206 hips) was performed. Outcomes were assessed clinically with Harris Hip Score at 6 and 12 months and then yearly…
…According to the authors’ results, the Birmingham Hip Resurfacing System resulted in good clinical outcomes at 4 years. Survival and outcomes in women, particularly those with modest bone size, are inferior. ..
…At 3 years, mean survival was better for men than for women (99% vs … Read the rest
The McMinn Centre has been overwhelmed by contact from concerned male and female patients who are devastated by Smith & Nephew’s decision and its implications. Many of our female patients have stated that after successful BHR surgery with Mr McMinn, they were planning to have the same operation on their other hip when it became necessary. Now this is not possible due to Smith & Nephew’s life-changing decision.… Read the rest
The First Generation Metal-on-Metal bearings manufactured in
the 1950s and 1960s were produced by the investment casting process (Ring
and McKee Farrar prostheses). From these devices we have recorded the
longest benign clinical history of cobalt chrome alloys with extremely low
linear wear rates.
The BHR™ is produced using the investment casting process from high carbon
cobalt chrome in the As Cast micro-structural condition.Wear studies have shown that Cobalt Chrome in its As Cast form has superior
wear resistance to other forms of the alloy.
The BHR™ has a hemispherical cup design with a cast-in
porous ingrowth surface called Porocast™. This ingrowth surface does not
require a heat treatment to attach the beads and therefore preserves the
