We have initiated the modern era of hip resurfacing which can at last realize the many theoretical benefits of resurfacing that surgeons have been aware of for 40 years. We are flattered that now two major overseas multinational orthopaedic corporations including Switzerland and Smith & Nephew (USA) have recently entered the market with metal on metal resurfacing devices.

Having performed the biggest series of hip resurfacings in the world here in Birmingham, we wish to continue to compete at an international level and maintain our lead in this exciting new development.

Total Hip Replacement has its foundation firmly in the UK. We are proud that we, Midland Medical Technologies Ltd, are an independent British company using British design, technologies, and manufacturing capabilities that currently lead the world, to resolve the last remaining hurdle in hip arthroplasty.
