The management of osteoarthritis of the hip in young active patients is challenging. We compared the functional outcomes and activity levels following hip resurfacing and uncemented THA in young active patients matched for age, gender and activity levels. Mean follow-up period was five years (4-7 years). Within each group there was a statistically significant improvement in the mean University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) and Oxford Hip Score (OHS) scores following surgery. This study found no statistically significant difference in the levels of function (p= 0.82) or activity pursued (p= 0.60) after surgery between uncemented THA and hip resurfacing. The potential complications unique to hip resurfacing may be avoided by the use of uncemented THA which in itself has longer follow-up compared to resurfacing.
