Metal on Metal Hip Replacements

There are several options for hip replacement patients. One of the most popular types of hip implant is the metal-on-metal implant device. This device includes a ball, stem, and shell, all of which are made of metal. This type of implant is one of the most popular options for a number of reasons.

Benefits of Metal-on-Metal Implants

•    This type of device reduces the risk of fractures once in place
•    Wear-and-tear on the device is less, extending the life of the implant
•    Lower risk of dislocation if the ball slips out of the socket
•    Reduced risk of second future surgery

Concerns of Metal-on-Metal Implants

•    Risk of metal release into the body
•    Skin rash after placement of implant
•    Cardiomyopathy
•    Renal function impairment
•    Neurological changes
•    Psychological changes
•    Thyroid dysfunction

The cause of these complications is believed to be related to the release of metal into the body. Over time, the accumulation of metal fragments can have a detrimental effect on a person’s health. This is one of the major problems with metal-on-metal implants. By the time symptoms begin to show, the implant has been in place for a long period of time and the buildup has occurred gradually.

If you are concerned about metal deposits, speak with your doctor about other options. There are hip implants made from other materials, so you do have choices when it comes to implants.

General Hip Implant Risks

It is also important to remember that general risks associated with hip implants are also an issue with metal-on-metal implants. Though some of these risks are reduced with this type of implant, patients must still be concerned with dislocation, wearing down of the device over time, and infection. This is why it is so important to weigh the pros and cons of different types of implants before making your final decision.

It is also important to realize the recovery period that is required when undergoing hip replacement surgery. Make sure you have enough time to recover and be sure you are committed to participating in physical therapy as part of the recovery process. Patients who are reluctant to participate in physical therapy or who lack the health or energy to do so may find their recovery process long and arduous. If you are concerned about your ability to recover properly from hip replacement surgery, speak with your doctor about other less invasive options.
