During hip resurfacing surgery, the end of the thighbone is capped with a metal covering that fits smoothly into a metal cup in the hip socket. The metal covering, or cap, swivels inside of the cup, replicating the hip joint. Hip resurfacing surgery preserves the bone and helps keep the patient’s otherwise healthy bone intact. The surgery resurfaces the bone instead of removing large amounts of it, making it closer in size and shape to the natural hip. Orthopedic surgeons Kevin Trapp, M.D. and Eric Martin, M.D. perform the procedure. Visit or call 888-321-6762 to learn more.
