Modern-day hip resurfacing is based on observations of patients with large diameter metal-on-metal (MoM) total hip prostheses such as the McKee-Farrar and the Ring Hip (Figure 1), who retained functioning hips with very little wear for more than 30 years after their operation3.
Finsbury (now MatOrtho®) was involved in the development of the Birmingham Hip Resurfacing (BHR), which was based on study of the successful devices and the application of modern manufacturing techniques. Since its first use in 1997, thousands of successful hip resurfacing procedures have been performed around the world.

The ADEPT® Hip Resurfacing System was developed using the knowledge gained by direct involvement in the BHR and the extensive research of historical MoM devices, and as the original manufacturer of the BHR3, manufacturing over 200,000 BHR devices. The ADEPT® Hip Resurfacing was first used in 2004.
The ADEPT® introduced a small number of advancements including consistent angle of coverage for all implant sizes, smaller increments between sizes and advanced instrumentation for its reliable implantation.
