Birmingham Hip Resurfacing (BHR) Technique in Live Webcast

Shawnee Mission Medical Center will showcase a new, less invasive approach to hip replacement during a live surgical Webcast on Wednesday, September 20, at 7 p.m.
During the Webcast, Scott Cook, MD, will perform the Birmingham Hip Resurfacing (BHR) technique. Cook is one of just 40 doctors in the United States trained to do the procedure.

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. The bone-conserving approach of the Birmingham Hip Resurfacing System preserves more of the patient’s natural bone structures and stability, covering the joint’s surfaces with an all-metal implant that more closely resembles a tooth cap than a hip implant. This approach reduces the post-operative risks of dislocation and inaccurate leg length, and because the all-metal implant is made from tough, smooth cobalt chrome, it has the potential to last longer than traditional hip implants, which involved the removal of the entire femoral head and neck. The Birmingham Hip resurfacing technique, however, leaves the head and neck untouched.

PreOpĀ® Orthopedic: Hip Replacement Patient Education

http://www.PreOp.com
Patient ED @ 617-379-1582 INFO
You doctor has recommended that you undergo hip replacement surgery. But what exactly does that mean?

The hip joint is the place where the thighbone – called the femur – and the hipbone – called the pelvis – meet.

As you walk, the ball-shaped end of the thigh moves within a cuplike depression on the side of the hip.

As long as the thigh can move smoothly against the hip, you are able to walk comfortably. But over time, especially in patients who suffer from arthritis or rheumatism, the hip joint can wear down.

Cartilage, the tissue that cushions the bones and makes it possible for them to move smoothly against each other can wear away.

When this happens, the bones rub together causing pain and even restricting the ability to walk.
* In some cases, hip surgery is recommended for people who have suffered a hip fracture.

* No matter what the cause, one of the most effective ways to fix a damaged hip is to replace it surgically.

In this procedure, the ball-shaped bone at the top of the thigh is removed and replaced with a metal substitute.

The hip socket is widened and lined with a smooth pad that allows the metal ball joint to move more freely against the pelvis.

Hip replacement surgery is a major operation, but your doctor believes that the procedure — followed up with physical therapy and time to heal — will result in reduced pain and greater mobility.

So make sure that you ask your doctor to carefully explain the reasons behind this recommendation.
