Total hip arthroplasty is one of the most common orthopedic surgeries performed in the United States. Demand for joint arthroplasties has increased every year for the past 20 years. THA is typically performed to resolve pain and loss of function from degenerative osteoarthritis of the hip. As the population ages and continues to pursue active lifestyles, hip osteoarthritis may become an even more common diagnosis. This may lead to an even greater demand not only for THA, but for other surgical options to relieve pain and permit continuation of desired activities. These procedures may also benefit the population’s overall health. Cardiovascular exercise has been shown to dramatically improve after THA in patients who had high levels of disability prior to surgery. The goal of this continuing education program is to provide physical therapists with information on hip resurfacing, rehabilitation, and current outcomes in hip resurfacing.


The goal of this continuing education program is to provide physical therapists with information on hip resurfacing, rehabilitation, and current outcomes in hip resurfacing. After studying the material presented here, you will be able to:
  • Describe the surgical procedures involved in hip resurfacing.
  • Discuss the current published information on rehabilitation after hip resurfacing.
  • Explain the current evidence for patient outcomes after hip resurfacing.
