–A Quick Video Overview
If you are considering a hip replacement, you might want to ask your doctor about the alternative which is called hip resurfacing. Not all hips qualify if there is too much bone deterioration but it’s worth looking into especially if you are young or lead an active life and want to continue doing so.
This is a cool commercial by Smith & Nephew, one of the makers of the prosthetics used. I saw it on TV and just like getting the word out about hip resurfacing because it’s such a new surgery here in the US. If it’s your first time hearing about it too, you can visit some of my other articles for additional resources and information.
