Birmingham Hip Resurfacing
As an alternative to traditional hip replacement, Covenant Orthopedics offers Birmingham Hip™ Resurfacing (BHR) surgery. Best suited to patients younger than age 55 or extremely active but older patients, BHR surgery can relieve hip pain caused by arthritis and degenerative hip disease and restore full movement.
How Does It Work?
During the BHR procedure, the rough, damaged surface of the hip joint is sanded away. Next, the surgeon caps both the ball and socket of the joint with high carbide cobalt chrome. This preserves more of the bone, but allows the metal-covered joint to glide smoothly in a natural motion.
