Hip resurfacing after FVFG?greenspun.com : LUSENET : About Joints : One Thread
If someone has had a FVFG that is succesful (meaning that the bone is alive and strong) but the pain is still bad enough to warrent a hip replacement, can you get hip resurfacing rather than a THR???
Also, is the any information available about hip resurfacing?
Thanks for any feedback!

Probably not because the transplanted fibula is too hard to drill the hole for the resurfacing stem.
