Apollo has the distinction of pioneering the Birmingham Hip Resurfacing procedure. Birmingham Hip Resurfacing has been considered a breakthrough medical technique.
BHR is primarily intended for use in people who are in need of a hip replacement at a younger age and therefore are likely to be more active. In Birmingham Hip Resurfacing a very small part of bone on the top of the thighbone is resurfaced. A metal head is fixed on the thighbone. It fits into a metal socket placed in the joint.
