I do not have an answer to your question, however, I'm equally interested in the subject matter - hip resurfacing using ceramics vs metal on metal - as I will be needing a hip replacement shortly. In the USA resurfacing has not been approved by the FDA as yet (Jan. 2005) and the two doctors whom I have consulted are not in favor of the procedure. Do you have any information at this point?
