Q:

What are the potential problems associated with hip resurfacing?

A:

Hip resurfacing is becoming less common given some risks associated with the procedure. The main issue is that with the metal on metal procedures that have been used for hip resurfacing, the risk increases for metal ions to be released into the bloodstream. Also, there can be a higher risk for the bone just under where the cap is placed to break.

Q:

What is the difference between a blackhead and a whitehead?

A:

Blackheads and whiteheads are both often caused by acne. Acne causes the pores in your skin (often the face) to become clogged or plugged. If the plug that is clogging the pore is close to the surface of your skin, it gets turned black from coming in contact with oxygen (a blackhead). If the plug is deeper under the skin's surface, it remains white (a whitehead).
