Date:5/3/2010

MEMPHIS, Tenn., May 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Recent new data(1) presented at this year's American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) annual meeting reinforces the BIRMINGHAM HIP™ Resurfacing (BHR) System as a safe and effective hip resurfacing device. The multi-site study, performed by orthopedic surgeons practicing at nine Canadian academic centers, showed that three years after surgery, 99.91% of their 3,400 hip resurfacing patients experienced no implant failure due to metal wear debris. The BHR Hip was the most used resurfacing device in this study.

This week, the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) in New York City will be holding a medical education course titled "Total Hip: Replacement and Resurfacing" on May 7 and 8 for leading hip surgery specialists from across the U.S. Chairing the course will be Edwin Su, MD, of the Hospital for Special Surgery, and the teaching faculty will include pioneering British surgeon Derek McMinn, MD, inventor of the BHR hip.  

During a press conference and Q&A webcast on Thursday, May 6, at 3 p.m. US EDT, 8 p.m. GMT, Joseph M. DeVivo, president of Smith & Nephew Orthopaedics ( SNN, LSE: SN), the maker of the BHR Hip, will be joined by Dr. Su and Mr. McMinn, as well as Scott Marwin, MD, an orthopedic surgeon with New York University's Hospital for Joint Diseases. The panel will review current data confirming the safety and effectiveness of hip resurfacing and the BHR Hip. Smith & Nephew Orthopaedics will host the call, and additional details are at the bottom
