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.


The course will be discontinued on June 30, 2020. Please plan to finish the course by June 29th if you wish to earn credit for it.
The goal of this course is to provide physical therapy professionals with information on hip resurfacing and evidence-based practices for rehabilitation after the procedure.
After taking this course, you should be able to:
  • Describe the surgical procedures involved in hip resurfacing.
  • Discuss possible complications and contraindications for hip resurfacing.
  • Explain the evidence for patient outcomes after hip resurfacing.
  • Discuss the published information on rehabilitation after hip resurfacing.
