Hi Patti – when it was time for my first hip replacement in 2020 at the age of 64 I did the same research and had the same question. I found a surgeon that did both replacements and resurfacing. He told me that at my age resurfacing was not covered by insurance and that replacement will allow me to continue to compete in both running and swimming events. Since the replacement I have logged many thousands miles of running, biking and hiking pain free and competed in both half Ironman and half marathon races.
