Hip Resurfacing – The Hip Replacement for Athletes

Table of Contents


If you are old and if walking on the beach or golfing is what you consider an “active” lifestyle, a THR will get you out of pain and restore these activities. It is probably also going to last your lifetime. But if you are young and want to play impact sports, hip resurfacing is your best option.

But for all patients, a hip resurfacing is more likely to feel like a normal hip, to be stable (avoid dislocation and restrictions), and last longer. I challenge other joint replacement surgeons to equal my hip resurfacing outcomes with an old-fashioned stemmed THR.

I challenge you to find better-published outcomes.

  • 99% 17-year implant survivorship for any age, sex, or diagnosis.
  • 98% rate of satisfaction
  • 0.3% dislocation risk, 0.1% revision rate for recurrent instability.
  • No wear corrosion failures in over 5000 cases since 2009.
