Birmingham Hip Replacement / Resurfacing
Birmingham Hip Resurfacing has been considered a breakthrough medical technique. Our partner hospitals in India are the pioneers of the Birmingham Hip Replacement procedure in the Asian region. Thousands of medical tourists from across the globe have visited the hospital to undergo BHR – not just for the cost factor, but also for the expertise. BHR has come as a boon for younger patients, as it results in very little bone loss and almost normal unrestricted movements and functions. The success rate of BHR is over 98%.
What is Birmingham Hip Replacement (BHR)?
BHR is primarily intended for use in people who are in need of a hip replacement at a younger age and therefore are likely to be more active. In Birmingham Hip Resurfacing a very small part of bone on the top of the thighbone is resurfaced. A metal head is fixed on the thighbone. It fits into a metal socket placed in the joint.
For people needing a replacement under the age of 55, regular consideration is given for this procedure. People aged between 55 and 65 who are very active and otherwise fit may also be suitable and this will be determined by their bone quality and activity level.
The BHR advantage
Traditional Total Hip Replacements (THR), invariably has a ‘metal on plastic’ bearing. These are reasonably successful in elderly relatively inactive patients, but offer unacceptably poor long term outcomes for young, active patients often with unavoidable multiple revision surgeries and associated complications. It is to avoid this unfortunate sequence of events that Birmingham Hip Resurfacing (BHR) was developed.
Conventional Hip Replacement Vs Birmingham Hip Resurfacing
Suitable for Elderly Patients > Suitable for Younger Patients
Head of femur (thigh bone) removed> Bone not removed
Articulation is metal with plastic> Articulation is metal with metal
Wears out rapidly in young and active patients> ‘Everlasting’ – based on 35 year history in Birmingham of Metal on Metal Articulation
Activity restriction required after surgery for fear of dislocation> Activity restriction not required after surgery as there is hardly any risk of dislocation
Sport not advised as the usage is inversely proportional the life of the hip replacement> Sport and High demand activities encouraged as usage is not related to life of resurfacing implant
Revision surgery invariably necessary in younger patients> Revision surgery not required for younger patients
