Birmingham Hip Resurfacing has been considered a breakthrough medical technique. Thousands of medical tourists from across the globe come to Indian Hospitals, to undergo BHR - not just for the cost factor, but also for the expertise. BHR has come as a boon for younger patients, as it results in very little bone loss and almost normal unrestricted movements and functions. The success rate of BHR is over 99%.
In Birmingham Hip Resurfacing the femoral head is not removed, but a very small part of the bone on the top of the thighbone (femur) is resurfaced. A metal head is fixed on the thighbone (femur). It fits into a metal socket placed in the joint. For people needing a replacement under the age of 55, regular consideration is given for this procedure. People aged between 55 and 65 who are very active and otherwise fit may also be suitable and their bone quality and activity level will determine this.
