Abstract

In recent years, metal-on-metal hip resurfacing has become an increasingly popular treatment for patients needing hip arthroplasty. Important factors to consider for a successful outcome include proper patient selection and surgical technique, including approach, component positioning, and cementing technique. This review will serve as guide to both those who are learning the technique of hip resurfacing and to more experienced surgeons.
