Hip resurfacing is an advanced surgical technique that can be used to treat painful arthritis. It has received a resurgence in media attention due to professional tennis star Any Murray and NBS basketball player Isaiah Thomas both undergoing hip resurfacing surgery and successfully returning to competitive professional sports. Unlike traditional total hip replacement surgery, hip resurfacing preserves more bone and provides an excellent alternative for younger, active patients who seek a durable and long-lasting solution to hip problems. 

Hip resurfacing involves carefully trimming the damaged femoral head surface and capping it with a smooth metal or ceramic covering, promoting a more natural range of motion and reducing the risk of dislocation by allowing an enhanced range of motion. Hip resurfacing implants are typically designed to withstand the rigors of an active lifestyle. 

While hip resurfacing offers numerous advantages, not everyone is an ideal candidate for the procedure. Generally, suitable candidates for hip resurfacing are younger than 60 years old, have healthy bone, minimal deformity, good overall health and seek to return to a physically active lifestyle including running and impact activities.  

Following hip resurfacing surgery, patients typically stay in the hospital for a few days to monitor their recovery. Physical therapy is an essential component of the rehabilitation process, and patients are encouraged to start walking with the assistance of crutches or a walker soon after the surgery. Over time, physical therapy will help regain strength, flexibility, and mobility, allowing patients to resume their daily activities gradually Following hip resurfacing surgery, patients typically stay in the hospital for a few days to monitor their recovery.
