Birmingham Hip Resurfacing
Dr. Rogerson was one of the first surgeons in this country and the first in Wisconsin to provide patients who suffer hip pain the remarkable Birmingham Hip Resurfacing (BHR) technique. This alternative, which has been offered in Europe and other countries for over 15 years, won FDA approval in May 2006. It was 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...
As of November 11th, 2013 all of Dr. Rogerson's surgical cases will now be performed at Stoughton Hospital as he no longer holds privileges at Meriter Hospital. Since January 2013, Dr. Rogerson has been performing arthroscopic shoulder, hip, and knee surgery at Stoughton Hospital and he is now pleased to be performing hip resurfacing there as well. Patients will still undergo "HipHab" (rehab) following hip resurfacing at Capitol Lakes in Madison. Please visit www.stoughtonhospital.com

Dr. Rogerson is excited about this expansion of his surgical practice to a surrounding Madison community.Our Madison clinic remains open and we also have a Stoughton clinic once weekly.
