What is Birmingham Hip Resurfacing?

Category: Surgeries


Birmingham hip resurfacing is an alternative surgery from a total hip replacement. Birmingham hip resurfacing is done to resurface just a few centimeters of bone rather than a full replacement of the end of the femur. This helps to preserve more of the femur and allows for improved hip function.
