FAQ

Metal-On-Metal Hip Implants
Metal hip implants are a popular choice as an artificial hip joint because of its durability, its decreased chance of becoming dislocated and its decreased chance of breakage.
Metal implants consist of a ball attached to a metal stem, which is attached to the patient’s femur, and a shell, which serves as the socket. There are two types of metal hip implants that are generally used during hip replacement surgery: Traditional artificial joint systems and hip resurfacing systems. Metal hip implants have been shown to be successful, with a low rate of requiring a revision, or second surgery. Metal-on-metal implants have a larger head size, which helps to reduce the chance of suffering a dislocation. A dislocated artificial hip joint is a common condition that can occur following hip replacement surgery.

By utilizing metal implants during hip resurfacing surgery, the goal is to preserve as much healthy bone as possible within the femur in case a total hip replacement surgery is necessary in the future. Hip resurfacing implants are only available in metal in the United States.
All artificial hip implants carry risks, and can become worn over time. Metal implants also carry risks. In these metal-on-metal implants, the ball and cup glide against one another when you are in motion. Some tiny metal particles can become worn off of the metal surfaces as the metal pieces slide against one another, causing the metal particles to become released into the bloodstream. Some people have a reaction to these types of metal particles, which can cause damage over time to the bone and tissue surrounding the joint. If this occurs, it can cause a variety of problems, including pain, loosening, and implant failure, which often requires a revision surgery to remove the implant and replace it with a new one.

If a patient with a metal-on-metal hip implant develops any complications that may be a sign that the implant is not working properly, it is important to meet with his or her orthopedic surgeon for an evaluation. The surgeon will physically examine the hip, but may also use a needle to remove and test the fluid surrounding the joint, order imaging tests and x-rays and also order blood tests. A blood test may indicate if there is an elevated level of metal ions in the patient’s bloodstream. Patients with metal hip implants need to pay attention to their health, especially any changes. A primary doctor should be aware that the patient has a metal-on-metal implant. The FDA recommends that patients with metal-on-metal hip implants visit their orthopedic surgeon every one or two years to make sure to identify any early signs of problems with the hip implants.

FAQ

Finding the Best Hospital for Hip Replacement Surgery
Most hip replacement patients don’t take an active role in finding the best hospital to have total hip replacement surgery. Instead, they’ll often pick the hospital closest to home.
If you’ve heard good things about the surgeons and hospital staff at your community hospital, that can be reason enough to decide to go there for surgery. Still, you may be doing yourself a disservice by not doing a little research into other hospitals and their joint replacement programs.
You should base your decision on whether to have your surgery on these factors:

•    Length of waiting time. How long will you have to wait before your operation?
•    Distance. Do you mind traveling a long way to a hospital that has a better joint replacement program? Keep in mind you will probably have to return for appointments, and it will mean extra travel time for any of your hospital visitors.
•    Infection rate. What is the hospital’s rate of secondary infections, like MRSA?
•    Re-admission rate. What is the hospital’s re-admission rate? It could be a sign that surgeries haven’t gone well.
•    Insurance coverage. Does your insurance cover your hospital stay there?
•    Joint replacement program. Does the hospital have a certified joint replacement program? Some hospitals are finding that patients recover more quickly if they are joined in physical therapy sessions by other patients who just had the same joint replacement surgery. A certified program will often mean that every member of your medical team – nurses, surgeons, anesthesiologists, operating room staff and your physical therapists – has special training in orthopedics.
•    Checks and balances. Does the hospital appear to have a system of checks and balances, the way it works to improve its own quality of care?
State and consumer groups also have hospital report cards that show the rankings of hospitals. Some state health departments have reports on the outcomes of specific procedures, including hip replacement.

If you decide to have the surgery at a hospital where your orthopedic surgeon does not have privileges, ask him or her for a referral for a surgeon who does operate there. Your family doctor also may provide you with a referral if you ask. Understandably, your doctor might not refer you to a surgeon at a competing hospital, so you may need to ask other people, including medical professionals. Since this is an elective surgery, it is up to you to find the best orthopedic surgeon and medical facility that you’ll feel comfortable with, and that you’ll trust.
