Dr. Nizam trained with and assisted the surgeon (Professor L. Kohan) for several years since 2006 who has performed the most number of Hip Resurfacings in Australia (>1000). Dr. Nizam was also involved in research on performance of Metal on Metal total hip Arthroplasty and Hip Resurfacings especially in the over-65 age group. Resurfacing is a bone preserving procedure indicated in younger more active patients with adequate bone density. The acetabulum (hip socket) is performed in the usual manner as for a total joint replacement but the femoral head is prepared and replaced with a metal prosthesis preserving the natural femoral neck. Thisenables running, jumping and certain elite sporting activities with less risk of dislocations or leg length discrepancy. Majority of the patients with a resurfacing don’t even think “about it”.

Anterior Hip Replacements from ozorthopaedics thumbnail

Anterior Hip Replacements

The AMIS – anterior hip is a true minimally invasive muscle sparing (inter-muscular and inter-nervous plane) procedure. It has been carried out in Europe for several years with very good success. The incision is smaller than the traditional posterior/lateral or anterolateral approaches and the muscles preserved. This approach can also be achieved through a bikini line scar on the front of the hip joint rather than a longitudinal (straight line) scar
