AbstractINTRODUCTION: Metal-on-metal hip resurfacing has provided an alternative to standard total hip arthroplasty in younger, more active patients. However, detractors argue that many of the benefits of resurfacing can be obtained with the use of larger femoral heads. The purported advantages of the resurfacing procedure include preservation of femoral bone stock, increased range of motion, decreased dislocation rate, excellent performance in high-activity patients, and a potentially easier revision than total hip arthroplasty. The purpose of this study was to examine the outcomes of patients who had hip resurfacing and to compare them to all total hip arthroplasty procedures performed during the same

Data were also analyzed separately for older and younger patients and women and men, respectively.Results: Of 112 patients, 110 participated in an average of 4.6 sport disciplines after surgery, compared
