An exciting new alternative to total hip replacement is now available in the United States. Used successfully for years around the globe, the BIRMINGHAM HIP* Resurfacing System has recently been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use in the United States.
Total hip arthroplasty is a surgical procedure in which the damaged cartilage and bone is removed from the hip joint and replaced with artificial components. This can help relieve pain and restore the normal alignment and function of your hip.
Hip arthroscopy is a surgical procedure performed through very small incisions to diagnose and treat various hip conditions. It is also referred to as keyhole or minimally invasive surgery.
Total knee arthroplasty is a surgical procedure in which the worn out or damaged surfaces of the knee joint are removed and replaced with new artificial parts. The procedure is designed to relieve pain and restore the alignment and function of your knee.1
In reconstruction surgery, the failed components are removed & the remaining bone is reconstructed using bone graft, metallic plates, cages, & screws & then the new implant components are positioned and fixed in place. It is generally performed to restore stability and improve lost function.
In revision hip and knee joint replacement the old implants are removed and replaced with new components. When a replacement joint wears out, loosens or develops a problem, a revision joint replacement may need to be performed.
