S2118 or an Unlisted, depending on carrier. It is not the same procedure as total hip arthroplasty so 27130 not appropriate.

Some insurance companies require S2118 and some require 27130. You can add a -22 for 27130 for the extra work involved as long as it is in dictated in the op note, not that it's necessarily paid by all. It's best to check with the policy for individual insurance company. Hopefully there will be a permanent CPT code specific to Hip Resurfacing soon, since it's been around for years.
