There is a new alternative for patients living with debilitating hip pain called hip resurfacing. Unlike hip replacement surgery, this procedure resurfaces the end of the femur (thigh bone) with smooth metal where it fits into your hip socket, rather than removing bone. Dr. Michael Buscemi, Jr. can offer this ground-breaking procedure to his patients in the Tampa, Florida area through the Birmingham hip resurfacing system.
Patients who undergo this procedure may be able to enjoy more strenuous activities than traditional hip replacement candidates. The implant may be potentially more stable and longer-lasting than traditional total hip replacements. If future revision surgery is required, it may be a less complex and less traumatic procedure.
