|An Orthopedic surgeon since 1991 Dr. John Ellis offers the very latest treatment options in
orthopaedic care. Dr. Ellis has several years of experience in hip and knee replacement procedures along with one of the newest hip resurfacing procedures.
Dr. Ellis is one of the few doctors in the Temecula area that has been trained and has successfully performed the revolutionary Birmingham Hip Resurfacing
Dr. Ellis was one of four orthopedic surgeons selected to attend a three day BHR VSP trip in March in Birmingham England. During his visit, Dr. Ellis had the opportunity to shadow pioneering design BHR surgeon Dr. Derek McMinn FRCS for three while he performed hip resurfacing surgeries. As a result of this visit, Dr Ellis gained additional knowledge on the hip resurfacing procedure, and has had the opportunity to bring back the gender specific techniques of which he learned while in England to his Practice in Temecula.
BHR was introduced in May of 2006 and was the first FDA approved hip resurfacing system in the U.S. This bone conserving procedure, combined with the virtual elimination of dislocation and excellent survivorship makes the BIRMINGHAM HIP Resurfacing ideal for the active informed patient. Due to the fact that this surgical procedure resurfaces rather than replaces the end of your femur, you may participate in more strenuous physical activity with an implant that is potentially longer lasting and more stable than total hip replacements.
