FAQ

Cemented Vs. Uncemented Hip Replacement Surgery
Total hip replacement surgeries have been performed since 1973. During the surgery, the femoral head is removed from the thigh bone and replaced with an artificial ball and socket system. Today there are many options available when selecting a hip implant. They are made from a variety of durable materials, including metal, ceramic and plastic, or a combination of materials. Traditional hip replacement surgery involves using a type of cement to attach the artificial hip implant into the thigh bone. Back in the 1980s, a new implant design was developed that doesn’t require cement. Instead, the hip implant has a porous surface, which allows the patient’s bone to grow into the prosthetic hip. The goal is that the bone will naturally attach to the artificial joint. Uncemented hip implants are intended to reduce the chance of infection and the loosening of the implant, two common problems related to hip replacement surgery. However, both cement and uncemented hip implants have been found to perform well either way.

Because no two people are alike, orthopedic surgeons may choose different hip implants for different patients, depending on a number of factors. Cemented implants are often used for older patients who aren’t very physically active, or patients who have weak bones, including those who suffer from osteoporosis. Uncemented implants are used more often with younger patients who live more active lifestyles. Studies have found that both means of attaching the hip implant have similar success rates. The chances of a hip implant failing and requiring a revision also have comparable rates between cemented and uncemented implants.

The biggest disadvantage to uncemented implants is the length of recovery following surgery. Because it takes awhile for a patient’s bone to grow in and attach itself to the artificial implant, a patient with an uncemented hip implant needs to limit activities for up to three months after surgery. Patients with uncemented hip implants can experience pain in the thigh for months after surgery, as the bone is growing into the implant. More than one-quarter million hip replacement surgeries are performed each year in the United States. Of those, more than 90 percent do not require a revision, or a second surgery to replace the implant.

New technological advances in surgical techniques and implant design and materials have dramatically reduced many of the risks associated with hip replacement surgery.
If you are unsure whether a cemented or uncemented hip implant is right for you, contact your orthopedic surgeon to discuss the benefits and risks associated with the many types of hip implants on the market.
