Compared to traditional total hip replacements, Birmingham Hip Resurfacing can have you home and on your feet in as little as one week. The implant is more stable and longer-lasting, and it can allow for more strenuous physical activity.

A personal message from Dr. Rogerson

When I realized that I had hip arthritis a number of years ago and would be facing hip replacement surgery in the future, I began to search for alternatives to our traditional metal on plastic arthroplasty. Like many baby boomers, I desire to remain very active and would like to continue to play tennis into a “ripe old age”. Unfortunately, once a traditional hip replacement is performed, high impact activities are restricted because of increased polyethylene (plastic) wear and early loosening of the prosthesis.
