Hip Resurfacing vs Hip Surface Replacement
Hip resurfacing involves replacing damaged surfaces in the hip joint with metal surfaces. This procedure can be useful for patients under 65 with advanced hip disease
 
Hip resurfacing surgery is an alternative to standard hip replacements for patients with severe arthritis. In hip resurfacing surgery, the implant is smaller, and less normal bone is removed. Hip resurfacing is gaining interest, especially in younger patients

Hip Joint Replacement Surgery
 

Dr Hugh Blackley FRACS is certified in orthopaedic surgery, arthritis and joint reconstructive surgery. His practice includes adult reconstructive surgery, total joint replacement , hip replacement, and revision hip joint replacement surgery.

Hip Joint Replacement Surgery is usually considered once other therapies, such as pain medications, have failed. Most people undergo hip replacement as a result of osteoarthritis of the hip joint.

You might want to ask your doctor about the possibility of hip replacement if you frequently experience any of the following:

  • Pain that keeps you awake at night
  • Little or no relief from pain medications
  • Difficulty walking up or down stairs
  • Trouble standing from a seated position
  • Having to quit activities you enjoy, such as walking, because you're in too much pain
