Frequently Asked Questions


How long does the average hip implant last?

The average hip replacement wears out in about 25 years, because it is constantly experiencing wear and tear. If you need to get a hip replacement at a young age, this can prove troubling: will you need to get a second hip replacement? To maximize the amount of time that a hip replacement can make a difference in your life, surgeons are always looking for surgical options that will prolong the life of your hip replacement.

What about ceramic implants?

In a metal or plastic implant, the plastic wears out over time and gets released into your body. While only a fractional amount of plastic is released into your body each year, this can complicate the overall function of your hip implant. Not only does it degrade the joint, it causes a chain reaction in your body that can cause your joint(s) to loosen. Ceramic implants are a fantastic alternative for this reason, because there is no plastic that can break down within the body. The ceramic ball and socket are extremely hard, durable, and smooth, which allows the hip joint to function smoothly without suffering too much damage.

One of the challenges faced by proponents of new ceramic replacements is the recency factor. While metal and plastic implants present their own set of challenges and health risks, they have been accepted practice for so long that medical professionals are well versed in the pros and cons of each procedure. That also means that doctors are well equipped to handle any challenges that present after a hip replacement procedure using a “traditional” method. Ceramic hip replacements have not been used for enough years for there to be conclusive studies about the resilience and long term functionality of a ceramic implant.

This does not mean that ceramic hip replacements are inherently more risky than other hip replacement surgeries, however. They offer some great advantages, including the lack of breakdown that occurs with other implants. Because they last so long, ceramic implants are often chosen for younger hip replacement candidates who need their hip replacements to last longer than usual. They are also wise options for particularly active individuals who will put their hip joints through more wear and tear than individuals with sedentary lifestyles. Ceramic hip replacements are an extremely effective way to reduce and eradicate pain, because they are so much more durable than any other alternative.
