Hip resurfacing surgery, an alternative to traditional total hip replacement surgery, involves the placement of a metal cap on the femoral head of the thigh bone, preserving the bone in the hip joint. This procedure is particularly popular among young, active patients who wish to maintain their lifestyle while finding relief from hip conditions.
Compared to traditional hip replacement, hip resurfacing surgery offers several advantages. Preserving the femoral head allows for better hip function and potentially reduces the risk of hip dislocation. Moreover, it conserves more bone, which may be beneficial for future revision surgeries.
Candidates for hip resurfacing surgery typically include individuals who:
JIS Orthopedics plans to extend this procedure to women in early 2024.
Before undergoing hip resurfacing surgery, it is crucial to prepare for the procedure and optimize your chances of a successful outcome. Our team at JIS Orthopedics will guide you through the pre-operative process, which typically includes:

The metal cap and hip socket create a smooth ball-and-socket joint, facilitating improved hip function and reduced pain.
Following hip resurfacing surgery, a tailored rehabilitation program will be essential for your recovery. Physical therapy plays a crucial role in helping you regain strength, flexibility, and mobility in your hip joint. Our dedicated team of orthopedic surgeons and physical therapists will guide you through this process, ensuring a safe and effective recovery.
While recovery times may vary, it is essential to note that it can take several months to fully regain your strength and resume your daily activities. Adhering to your physical therapy regimen and following the guidance of your medical team will optimize your results.
As with any surgical procedure, hip resurfacing carries some potential risks and complications. Potential complications may include:
However, it’s crucial to understand that these risks are relatively low, and our experienced orthopedic surgeons employ advanced techniques and precautions to minimize them.
It’s also important to note that there is a minimal risk of metal ion release. However, we use the highest-quality implants with excellent long-term survival rates, surpassing those of most traditional hip replacements.
Hip resurfacing is a revolutionary surgical procedure that offers a viable alternative to traditional hip replacement for younger, active individuals seeking relief from hip pain and improved joint function. At JIS Orthopedics, we are committed to providing exceptional care throughout your hip resurfacing journey, from the initial consultation to post-operative rehabilitation.
