Hip resurfacing involves a replacement of the joint’s articular surface only. A total hip replacement, or arthroplasty, on the other hand, involves surgical removal of the neck of the femur (thighbone) and insertion of a stem deep inside the bone to connect with the pelvic socket and liner. Hip resurfacing should be an integral component of any medical practice involved in hip reconstruction. It is a part of my practice.

Postoperative Hip Orthoses. 4. Patient Testimonial: Bilateral Hip Resurfacing (Peggy Gabriel).

Postoperative Hip Orthoses. After hip-reconstruction surgery for children with hip dysplasia, CP, and spina bifida, hip spica casts have traditionally been applied and set at 30 degrees of unilateral hip abduction (combined 60-degree angle) and 30 degrees of hip flexion. Hip spicas have a number of disadvantages.

This option is being done successfully in many parts of the world.

This book is a story about the journey to discover the gift of choice, and help you to weigh the facts about hip surgery.

This book is presented as a brief bio of the journey the author went through to find a solution to back and hip pain. It is a quick read, and you will find tidbits of information regarding total hip replacement surgery verses hip resurfacing. Since it is a personal account, there is relatively little medical information except for some drawn diagrams and a forward by her surgeon. If you can get past the poor grammar and poorly contructed sentences, this may well be a book you can use. I was looking for a book with an emphasis on these two medical procedures. I found that I had to sift through the personal accounts of her own experience to gleen what information I could that might pertain to my situation. It is encouraging to see her results as portrayed in the pictures of her post surgery pilates classes. As the author well says on many occasions, the information regarding both total hip replacement surgery and hip resurfacing surgery is readily available on the internet. The actual procedure called hip resurfacing is so new in the United States you will hardly find a physician who will perform it, much less an insurance company who will pay for it. It isn't terribly helpful to know the author had to travel to Belgium (all at her own expense) to have this procedure done on her hips, as most of us simply cannot afford this option. Save the money you would spend on this book, and search the internet for information instead.

I bought this book hoping for an objective assessment of the benefits of hip replacement versus hip resurfacing. It does not come close to the promise of its title. Basically, it is a description of the author's experience, which, though valid, does not provide an objective perspective. There are a few useful words of advice, but overall this book is an advocacy platform for resurfacing. Having said that, I did give an extra star because I now feel more compelled to look further into resurfacing than I would have otherwise done.

January 2009 - an update: I looked further into resurfacing, and chose to go with this option for my hip. I am very happy with my choice, and strongly urge anyone who needs hip replacement to look at resurfacing. I still would not recommend this book, however.

Ok,like another reviewer said I gave it 2 stars as it got me to keep researching.I had my hip resurfaced just under 2 weeks ago.Her book rather underminded and glossed over the recovery,talking about other single hip surgery patients going out site seeing etc.The author had both hips done simultaneously.

I went into this optimisticaly and in fairly good shape and fairly young. I wish I had spent the first week of recovery in a coma.This is major orthopedic surgery.I truly recommend the proceedure,but like a full hip replacement it is no walk in the park. (Pun intended)Go for it but with open eyes. Do your research.This proceedure is now FDA approved in the USA,Search Birmingham Hip also FDA approved for a certified surgeon.Best of Luck

I finally had to face the fact that I needed hip replacement. I had put if off for years because I couldn't face the loss of such a large part of my bone structure. Then I discovered Hip Resurfacing and the decision was easy. This book gives a great description of each from a real life context. i chose resurfacing. The book was so good that I passed it to my doctor that was planning on having a total hip replacement. After reading it, he changed his mind and joined me in my decision to go with resurfacing. Please read this book before making your decision.

I've had conventional hip surgery as opposed to minimal invasive in 2003 after meeting with the surgeon who developed the latter. My remaining hip has almost reached the point of surgery but I'm still reluctant to try the minimal invasive procedure. However, "hip resurfacing" has great appeal for me. I read Peggy Gabriel's book in one session and I believe the procedure is starting to appear in the U.S. I have yet to contact the Hip Society of America, San Francisco, just waiting to hear more about this procedure which has been done in the Netherlands for some time. Ms Gabriel's book makes a strong case for resurfacing.

The book gave me a great understanding that there are other types of surgery besides what our doctor recommends! It is good to be informed and to look to other countries and their cutting edge technologies. The book is well written and is easy to read.
