Frequently Asked Questions:

What's next after metal on metal implants?

Hip replacement surgeries have been performed effectively for years, and the biggest problem has always been the limited lifespan of a hip implant. Most hip implants last for only 15 years, and if you’re prone to certain risk factors, that number can be even smaller. Scientists, researchers, and surgeons have been looking for ways to extend the lifespan of hip replacements for years, and it may be that they’ve finally found the way to do that.

Most hip replacement surgeries utilize metal-on-metal hip implants, sometimes with a plastic coating on the metal socket. As more and more research has been conducted, it has been revealed that hip replacement revision surgery is much more common in patients who have received metal-on-metal hip replacement surgery. Because of that, there has been a push in the medical community to move away from metal-on-metal hip implants. Scientists and researchers think that they may have found the answer with highly innovative plastic implants. As soft tissue within the body grows around the implant, it is greatly weakened. If a hip implant could be revised to encourage bone growth, there would be great potential for hip implants to last a lifetime.

Scientists at Glasgow University are covering a strong plastic called polyetheretherketone (PEEK) in a complex nanopattern that sends a signal to the soft tissue and stem cells in your body to encourage bone growth. This technology would ultimately be relevant to shoulder and knee injuries as well. The upside to this technology is that because it would actually cause bone growth, you wouldn’t need revision surgery a few years after your hip replacement. Instead, your body would regenerate bone in crucial areas, and that would allow your body to naturally carry out the process that would heal your hip.

The biggest downside to this technology, undoubtedly, is that it isn’t ready to be marketed. Years of research have gone into developing the nanopatterns that this process is based on, and another ten years could pass before this process is ever successfully used on a patient, but it shows great promise for the industry and could one day be a great development for thousands of surgical candidates who would ordinarily go through two or three hip replacement/revision surgeries. It’s also conceivable that this nanopattern technology could one day be applied to medicines or other surgeries, in order to help your body fight off disease or regrow certain elements.
