Arthroscopic Surgery, Knee Surgeon, Hip Resurfacing
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”.
