Birmingham Hip Resurfacing system (BHR) was introduced in 1997 as an alternative to total hip replacement. This bone-conserving procedure, combined with the virtual elimination of dislocation make BHR ideal for younger, more active patients.
The BHR is part of a surgical procedure that replaces these worn ball-and-socket surfaces in the joint with smooth, durable high-carbide cobalt chrome. Dr. Lopez trained in England to perform the Birmingham Hip Resurfacing procedure.
