Rottinger (modified anterior) Total Hip Replacement
Birmingham Hip Resurfacing
Dr. Rogerson is among the first surgeons in this country and the first in Wisconsin to provide patients who suffer hip pain the remarkable new Birmingham Hip Resurfacing (BHR) technique. This alternative, which has been offered in Europe and other countries for more than a decade, finally won FDA approval in May 2006. It is the first FDA approved hip resurfacing system in the United States. Rather than replacing the entire hip joint, as in a total hip replacement, hip resurfacing simply shaves and caps a few centimeters of bone within the joint. Learn More...

Beginning in January 2013, Dr. Rogerson is expanding his practice to offer arthroscopic hip, shoulder, and knee surgery at Stoughton and Edgerton Hospitals in addition to Meriter Hospital in Madison. Please visit www.stoughtonhospital.com
