For younger patients, the prospect of hip replacement is a daunting one. Traditional replacements require the removal of substantial amounts of bone, and more than likely, younger patients will require another replacement in 10-15 years.
Recently, the first hip resurfacing procedure east of Lexington was performed at Saint Joseph Mount Sterling. An alternative to traditional hip replacement, resurfacing is a bone conserving solution for younger, more active patients.
Before you undergo traditional hip replacement surgery, contact an orthopedic surgeon at Saint Joseph Mount Sterling to see if hip resurfacing is right for you. Call 606-285-6400 to schedule an appointment.
