WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center is the first hospital in the Triad to offer a new type of hip surgery that is an alternative to standard total hip replacement. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration in May 2006, the hip resurfacing procedure is designed for younger patients who want to remain physically active after hip replacement surgery.
On Tuesday, April 17, at 5 p.m. EDT, Wake Forest Baptist will host a live webcast of the Birmingham hip resurfacing procedure, featuring Riyaz Jinnah, M.D., performing the surgery and William Ward, M.D., moderating the event.
