In this video, Professor Antonio Moroni discusses this use of BHR and hip resurfacing in Italy. He also shares his personal experiences and what he has concluded on the use of BHR in hip arthroplasty. On his concluding slide, he states that hip resurfacing is his treatment of choice for young, active patients and that BHR has shown good long term results. He says that to do the procedure successfully, one needs to have large volumes and routines are needed. A surgeon can decrease their failure rate by optimizing the surgical technique and the indications to their patient.
