Hip replacement surgery is a radical and traumatic procedure that has enormous disadvantages to the patient in terms of postoperative mobility and morbidity. Hip resurfacing is a more conservative approach resulting in less of the patient's hip and femur being lost, which has great advantages to a younger patient group. The author of Hip Resurfacing is the world's leading authority on this surgery, making this the definitive resource in hip resurfacing
Over the past 10 years hip resurfacing has become increasingly popular in Europe and North America as an alternative to the more invasive procedure of total hip replacement. Rather than remove the entire femoral head and neck leading to difficulties should the hip replacement need to be revised, resurfacing conserves much more of the patient's healthy femur and this has been shown to be of great benefit to many patient groups, especially younger and more active patients. Modern Hip Resurfacing includes a huge number of high-quality images designed to guide the reader through the procedure. Mr McMinn is the acknowledged innovator in the technique and has assembled a team of experts in all aspects of the resurfacing procedure, from materials science to the surgical procedure itself. This book represents a comprehensive resource for all orthopedic surgeons wanting to incorporate hip resurfacing into their surgical work and provides a compelling story that reinforces the place resurfacing has taken in the surgeon's armamentarium.
