FAQ

This system was first used in Europe in 1997, but was not approved by the FDA for American use until 2006.  One benefit of this system is the joint size. Many artificial hip joints are smaller than the body’s natural hip joint, increasing the risk of dislocation.  The Birmingham system is about the same size as a real hip joint.  It is recommended for young, active people because they are at higher risk of dislocation.  Traditional artificial hips can also cause problems by creating a leg length discrepancy.  When part of the femoral neck is removed and replaced with an artificial part, this will change the length of the leg unless the replacement part is exactly the same size as the bone it is replacing.  This is not an issue with this system.

While the Birmingham system has some key benefits, it can also cause problems because of the materials it uses. Since the Birmingham system is metal on metal, it is prone to the same problems as other such systems.  Small metal particles wear off in the course of normal wear and tear.  They can cause damage, inflammation and pain to local tissues, and cause pseudotumors to develop. The metal ions can also leach into the blood, where they can cause systemic problems such as mood or cognition symptoms. 

Anyone who has a metal-on-metal hip replacement or resurfacing system is at risk of these side effects. And although the overall volume of metal is less with this system, the amount of surface area that is in contact and subject to wear is the same. Patients with this type of hip have developed metal health problems and filed lawsuits against the maker of the product, making it doubtful whether new patients should choose it.
