About Dr. Stephen Raterman

Stephen Raterman, MD, is one of the most experienced Hip Resurfacing Surgeons in the U.S. He is an innovator in minimally invasive Joint Replacement Surgery of the knee and hip. He performs partial knee resurfacing as well as arthroscopic surgery of the knee, hip and shoulder. He has been past Chief of Surgical Subspecialties at University Community Hospital (UCH) as well as Chief of Staff and Chief of Credentials at UCH. For the past 5 years, he has been an Associate Professor of Orthopaedics at University of South Florida. In 2006, Dr. Raterman was among the first surgeons in this country who have trained in England to perform the remarkable Birmingham Hip Resurfacing (BHR) technique. Rather than replacing the entire hip joint, as in a total replacement, hip resurfacing simply shaves and caps a few centimeters of bone within the joint.
“This is one of the most exciting procedures I’ve seen in years. I see hip resurfacing as the ideal solution for many of my young, active patients who suffer from hip pain. As my patients are getting younger and younger, and are staying physically active much later in life, I’ve needed an alternative to total hip replacement that accommodates their age and lifestyle. The Birmingham Hip Resurfacing System is that alternative.” – Stephen Raterman, MD
