Live Webcast Birmingham Hip Resurfacing Procedure (Visit this link)
On April 17, 2007, 5pm EDT, Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center surgeons will demonstrate a Birmingham Hip™ Resurfacing procedure on www.OR-Live.com. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration in May 2006, the Birmingham Hip Resurfacing System is designed to remove less of the patient’s bone than traditional hip replacement surgery. “This is a breakthrough in total hip surgery that allows hip replacements to be performed in young and active patients and allows them to participate in sports activities without the limitations imposed on standard total joint patients,” said Riyaz Jinnah, M.D., Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery.
