2 years ago I was diagnosed with arthritis in my left hip, my specific condition is Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) which is the same condition that Andy Murray has.
He recently had an hip resurfacing operation.
This operation seems suitable for someone of my age (48 years) as doesn't involve replacing the whole hip.
I live in Singapore, I asked an Orthopaedic Doctor over here whether this operation is available and they told me it's not recommended because there is a potential for metal ions to be absorbed into the blood stream.
I would like to know if this operation is not recommended also in UK, is my Doctor being overly cautious ?
