Birmingham Hip Resurfacing – Take the Next Step

After reading about Birmingham hip resurfacing, you may be interested to learn whether or not you are a good candidate for the procedure. Please take a moment to answer the following questions:

Do I have a metal allergy?

Do I have insulin dependent diabetes?

Do I have rheumatoid arthritis that is poorly controlled or that requires prednisone medication to treat?

Do I have lupus?

Do I have chronic kidney failure?

Do I have other immuno-compromising diseases such as amyloidosis?


If you answered “yes” to one or more of the above questions, you are not a good candidate for hip resurfacing.
