Hip Resurfacing - in the UNited States

Driven by Experience

An orthopedic surgeon for more than 25 years, Dr. James Rector has extensive experience in hip and knee replacement procedures. When Birmingham Hip Resurfacing became available in the United States in May 2006, Dr. Rector was excited to be the first Colorado surgeon to offer it. He has performed more than 900 Birmingham Hip Resurfacing surgeries since June 2006.

Birmingham Hip Resurfacing offers younger patients the possibility of returning to more active lifestyles. In Dr. Rector’s practice, early results have been as good or better than those for conventional total hip replacements.

Available in theUnited States

Previously available only outside the United States, the BIRMINGHAM HIP Resurfacing System received U.S. FDA approval in May, 2006.  Shortly thereafter Dr. James Rector, here in the USA, became the first surgeon in Colorado performing the procedure.
