Osteoarthritis Hip Resurfacing Near White Plains, New York
Looking for an alternative to total hip replacement? For some patients, hip resurfacing may be an option. Call the experts at the Lawrence Hospital Center Department of Orthopedics & Sports Medicine near White Plains, New York, and see if this may be an option for you.
Unlike traditional hip replacement, hip resurfacing doesn't require removing the "ball" of the hip (femoral head) and replacing it with a metal or ceramic ball. Instead, the damaged hip ball is reshaped and capped with a metal prosthesis. Resurfacing creates a bigger hip ball than is generally used in hip replacement, which may reduce the risk of dislocation. In addition, the damaged hip socket (acetabulum) is fitted with a metal prosthesis - similar to what is used in hip replacement.
Are you a candidate for this procedure? Hip resurfacing is not usually recommended for people with osteoporosis due to an increased risk of fracture of the femur, but for certain injuries it can be a good solution. To find out if hip resurfacing is a good fit for your condition, call for an appointment today.
At the Lawrence Hospital Center Department of Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, the entire surgery from the first incision to final closure of the joint is performed by experienced, board certified orthopedic surgeons. We want to see you painfree. Give us a call to start the recovery process today.
