Hip Replacement OR Hip Resurfacing
A Story Of Choices
The number of Americans facing hip replacement surgery is rising annually.
There is a much less invasive alternative to the total hip replacement
surgery. It is HIP RESURFACING. Based on a European
track record, hip resurfacing indicates a potential for hips that may
last many years longer, which is of vital importance to people in their
30's, 40's, and 50's.
Revisions to the total hip replacement and risks of dislocations are concerns
that are minimized by hip resurfacing.
Peggy Gabriel, as many Americans, braved a trip to a foreign country to

information that we are seeking.
