The first hip resurfacing surgery in Poland was performed in 2003 by Jacek Laskowski MD PhD in our clinic. This procedure is the only option that allows patients to maintain full mobility of the hip joint and play sports without the risk of dislocation or loosening of the implant. However, due to the limited size of the socket, this prosthesis was intended only for men.
Nowadays, the Carolina Medical Center introduces the ADEPT® endoprosthesis which, owing to a wide range of sizes, can also help women who suffer from osteoarthritis of the hip and want to stay active.
Hip resurfacing procedure is an alternative to total hip replacement – it only removes the articular surfaces, making this method the least invasive treatment procedure for hip degeneration.
