This page shows how different hip problems are solved with hip resurfacing
The following chart is a true example of possible pre-operative “diagnoses” over 237 people that I have helped and received a hip resurfacing. How different hip problems are solved with hip resurfacing follows from the chart. So don’t be mislead by doctors that may say otherwise, this can only be determined by a real hip resurfacing specialist. Please contact me if you would like to have your problem free of charge examined by an expert.
The following images show in pairs first a person’s problem (on the left) followed by the solution using hip resurfacing (on the right). Since there are about 15 manufacturers of resurfacing prostheses you will also notice some design differences. Additionally, each manufacturer does even offer a range of about 10-12 different sizesa so that each patient can be given a size that matches the person’s own natural femoral head. This last point is unique and one of the great advantages of the hip resurfacing method and the added guarantee that the original anatomy of the hip is preserved, see the photos!
You can select and directly jump to a specific problem:
– Osteo arthritis
– Severe arthritis
– Bone fragments
– Femoral neck fracture
– FAI (impingment)
– Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease
– Protrusio acetabuli
– Valgus femoral neck
Both the BHR and BMHR prosthesis are marketed by Smith & Nephew but sadly enough the BMHR is since 2014 no longer manufactured.

The images above show that a number of people with a healed earlier femoral neck fracture still can be suitable candidates for a hip resurfacing. This should be checked with a resurfacing specialist. Please contact me if you are in a similar situation.

To hear if just your specific hip problem is suitable for treatment with a hip resurfacing you are always welcome to contact for help with a free consultation by some of the specialists in my network. If it is possible to use hip resurfacing and thereby spare the femoral neck this will obviously be a big advantage compared with conventional hip prostheses whereby the femoral neck always is sacrificed. In our Facebook group Nordens Hippies you can also come in contact with the people behind the x-ray images that were shown here and hear about their experiences since the operation.
