FAQ

Information Surgeons Consider Surrounding Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacement Surgeries

Hip replacement surgery can offer improved mobility and function for those with damaged joints. In this procedure the ball and socket of the hip joint is replaced with a prosthetic implant. There are several different options when it comes to hip replacement prosthetics.

The three most common options are ceramic, metal and plastic and metal-on-metal. Surgeons must consider many different factors in working with a patient to determine what kind of hip replacement implant will best suit the patient.

General Considerations

Your orthopedic surgeon will meet with you to evaluate if you are a candidate for hip replacement and which type is best suited for you. Your physician will review your medical history, general health, extent of hip pain and how it is affecting your daily life. They will also perform a physical examination to asses your mobility, alignment and strength in the damaged hip.

X-rays will be taken to further asses the damage and it is possible that the surgeon will want an MRI to get a better idea of the health of the bone and surrounding tissue. Once your physician and you decide that hip replacement could improve your function you will need to determine which type fits into your lifestyle as well as weighing the risks and benefits of each.

There are a few basic factors that are first considered when determining which material is best suited for the patient's hip replacement.

•    Age
•    Weight
•    Activity level
•    Gender

While these are basic things surgeons consider for all hip replacement patients, there are specific aspects of each of these that need to be considered for metal-on-metal implants. Individuals such as extremely overweight patients or females with small bone structure may not be best suited for metal-on-metal implants. However, the physician will look into these and all of the factors to decide.

Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacement Considerations

Surgeons must consider specific information for each type of implant. They all have risks and benefits in common and individual to each material. When considering a metal-on-metal implant some factors your surgeon will consider are:

•    Current medications being taken, particularly corticosteroids
•    Suppressed immune system function
•    Known or suspected metal sensitivity
•    Renal sensitivity or impaired renal function
•    Women of childbearing age
•    Need for dual hip replacement
•    Ability to optimally align implant pieces

Surgeons must carefully weigh all the risks and benefits associated with each implant option and pair that information with the patient's personal profile of information obtained during evaluation. Then together the surgeon and patient can consider if hip replacement will improve the quality of life and function and if so which prosthetic would be best.
