Hip Resurfacing Treatment refers to the surgical procedure by which the traditional method of total hip replacement has been modified but with similar end results. In this procedure, the femur is worked upon to fit the prosthetic ball onto it with a much shorter stem than in the other process. A person may experience hip joint pain due to many reasons. It could be due to normal wear and tear, particularly, if the person has a hard lifestyle. In other cases, hip fracture could occur due to an accident. In such cases also, the resurfacing surgery can be done as the treatment. If it is just lower back pain, the person is suffering, then, the doctor could get some X-rays done and prescribe medication to relieve the pain. The procedure itself will last up to 2 hours, but there would be some preparatory work before the surgery and around one hour will have to be spent in the recovery room post surgery. In terms of the hips being returned to normal functioning, it may take months. The first few days, the person has to use crutches to stand up and walk and after a few weeks, physical therapy is started. The patient is generally able to walk and go about his/her duties, once the physical therapist has completed the sessions and the doctor is satisfied that the surgery has been successful. But there is a certain lifespan for these resurfaced hip joints and the person may have to undergo one more such surgery in his/her lifetime.
