BIRMINGHAM HIP Resurfacing System
Methodist Hospital is proud to offer patients the new alternative to hip
replacement surgery: the BIRMINGHAM HIP Resurfacing System. This procedure
can be used to treat arthritis, dysplasia, and avascular necrosis.
Hip replacements are relatively common procedures. As body’s age
natural wear and tear wears the joints down and result in pain and reduced
mobility. When the pain gets too intense, doctors recommend hip replacement
surgery to remove the damaged components and replace them with synthetic
alternatives. The new Resurfacing System spares patients this complex
surgery and instead removes limited portions of the hip and replaces them
with a small implant. Inserting the implant is much simpler than full
on hip replacement surgery, and has been proven to be extraordinarily
safe and effective.
If you’re an athlete suffering from pains or an injury, sports medicine
is likely going to be the fastest means of diagnosing and treating your
problem. A doctor specializing in sports medicine is familiar with conditions
that commonly occur from various physical activities. This knowledge helps
them perform diagnostic tests that will quickly rule out or confirm their
suspicions about your condition. Since they commonly treat athletes, sports
medicine doctors can prescribe very accurate treatments. Additionally,
they can best evaluate your health to determine whether or not you are
ready to return to the field.
When you have suffered a sports injury, you do not want to resume normal
activity until you are fully healed. Doing so could result in a reoccurrence,
or even permanent disability.
