After reviewing thousands of case studies going back 25 years across six countries, researchers at the University of Bristol say they indicate that eight out of 10 total knee replacements (TKRs) and six out of 10 total hip replacements (THEs) will still be in place after 25 years.
Dr. De Smet places his first ReCerf hip resurfacing device on March 3, 2019 in Johannasburg South Africa. ReCerf is a new type of ceramic on ceramic hip resurfacing device. The traditional standard hip resurfacing device is metal on metal like the BHR , Birmingham Hip Resurfacing Device, the Wright C+ and Biomet. New types of devices are being developed which will be used with all good candidates, even women and small men.

Best thing I have ever done! Got my left hip resurfacing with Mr McMinn in 1999 and 20 years later it’s still great. I’m an active person doing cycling, walking, swimming, gym and judo. A normal hip replacement would have probably been revised 20 years ago! Right hip resurfacing done in 2014 and perfect and still very active at nearly 67.
