Who Is A Good Candidate For Hip Resurfacing

A good candidate for hip resurfacing is usually a younger patient with good bone quality and who does not have severe osteoporosis or bone deformities. They should also have good general health and normal kidney function. Hip resurfacing is often recommended for patients with hip arthritis, hip dysplasia, or hip avascular necrosis. However, the final decision on whether someone is a good candidate for hip resurfacing should be made by a qualified orthopedic surgeon after a thorough evaluation of the individual’s specific case.
