VIDEO from Medialink and Stryker: New Alternative to Hip Replacement Surgery
Date:1/8/2008

NEW YORK, Jan. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- With over 43 million Americans suffering from arthritis, hip replacement is becoming a common procedure. But a new alternative to traditional hip replacement, called hip resurfacing, is on the rise due to the bone-conserving nature of the procedure, minimized risk of dislocation and potential benefits related to post-operative activities and increased range of motion.

Introduced internationally in 1997, Cormet Hip Resurfacing technology has recently been approved and released by the FDA for use in the United States. In this innovative process, the end of the thigh bone, or femur, is capped with a metal covering, much like the capping of a tooth and fits neatly into a metal cup that sits in the hip socket. Should the device need replacing at some time in the future, a conventional total hip replacement can typically be used, making it an attractive option for younger and more active osteoarthritis patients.
