BIRMINGHAM HIP™ Resurfacing

November 17, 2008
6:00 PM EST
Your Time:
From Hartford Hospital, Hartford, CT

More than 70,000 people across the world with osteoarthritis have undergone a hip resurfacing procedure with the BIRMINGHAM HIP™ resurfacing system. Using a specialized instrument, the surgeon will remove the damaged surface of the socket to tightly support a highly-polished metal cup. The femur is similarly prepared for a polished metal cap, preserving much of the original bone. The surgeon inserts the metal cap into place and repositions the femur into the socket, yielding a metal-on-metal functional hip surface.

Watch as Drs. Durgesh Nagarkatti and Mark Shekhman bring you this procedure in a live Internet broadcast, on Monday, November 17, 2008 at 6 pm EST from Hartford Hospital in Hartford, Connecticut.
