Frequently Asked Questions:

How do hip replacements impact seniors?

For seniors living with chronic pain or mobility issues, everyday tasks can be painful, challenging, and demoralizing. The hip is a ball-and-socket joint, which means that a ball rotates within a socket to generate movement. The femur is topped by the femoral head, which is covered in tissue called "articular cartilage." This cartilage enables the femoral head to move within the socket smoothly. As this cartilage wears away with age, the mobility of the hip greatly decreases, and it can cause a lot of pain. Luckily for seniors, there are a lot of surgical options that can increase mobility and decrease pain.

One surgical option is a total hip replacement; a surgeon removes the damaged femoral head and the damaged portions of the socket. The removed bone is replaced with a metal ball, a metal socket, and a metal rod to replace any portion of the femur that has been removed. When the socket is replaced, a plastic lining is sometimes used to line the socket and increase ease of mobility.

Why are metal on metal implants so popular?

Metal-on-metal hip replacements wear out far less quickly than other options, simply because the metal is so durable. As with any surgery, there are some risks posed by the surgery. Most notably, metal can be released into the bloodstream as wear occurs. Not all hip replacements are metal on metal. The most common hip replacement surgery, in fact, is a metal/plastic blend. The ball and socket are replaced with metal but no plastic is added to line the socket. Ceramic-on-ceramic implants, like metal-on-metal implants, are extremely resistant to wear. Some health care experts are concerned about the potential for ceramic implants to break within the body, which is why they are less common than other hip replacement methods.

To determine what type of hip replacement surgery (if any) is the best option for any particular lifestyle, a doctor will take you through a multi-step evaluation. This includes taking your medical history, a cursory physical examination, at least one set of x-rays, and additional testing as needed. This could mean a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan, which helps doctors determine how much damage has been done to your bone and soft tissue.  

The most important thing you can do to properly put an end to hip pain is to work with your doctor to find the hip replacement surgery that fits your medical needs the best.
