Course Overview

Total hip arthroplasty (THA) is one of the most common orthopedic surgeries performed in the United States. Hip resurfacing may offer a reasonable option for patients with hip osteoarthritis who want to resume more aggressive activities than would be tolerated by a traditional THA. Therapists may encounter patients looking for advice on this procedure or requiring rehabilitation after the procedure. This module provides physical therapy professionals with information regarding the process of hip resurfacing, its risks and benefits, considerations for postoperative rehabilitation, and outcomes.
