FAQ

What are the Different Types of Hip Replacements?

One of the most common orthopedic procedures performed is hip replacement. In this procedure the ball and socket of the damaged hip joint is replaced with an artificial implant. This surgery can bring relief and added mobility if you are suffering with severe joint damage.

There are three basic types of hip replacement commonly used: metal and plastic, ceramic and metal-on-metal. Not every option is suited for everyone. Various factors such as age, weight, activity level and doctor recommendation will be a part of the decision process. Take the time to discuss with your doctor what your expectations and needs are for after surgery. This will help the two of you make decide which type of implant will suit you best.

Metal and Plastic

With this implant both the ball and socket are replaced with metal implants and a polyethylene plastic spacer rests in between. The metal can be stainless steel, cobalt chrome or titanium. The metal is attached to the bone utilizing bone cement or a method called press-fit.

Another type of metal and plastic hip replacement uses crosslinked polyethylene. This type of plastic is thought to not wear out as quickly as the traditional metal and plastic implant. However, these types of implants have only been around a short time so this has yet to be proven.

Ceramic

The ball and socket are each replaced with ceramic implants. There is no spacer piece between them. That is why it is also referred to as ceramic-on-ceramic hip replacement. Ceramic implants are smooth and hard which can lead to less wear over time but there is some concern over the potential for breaking while implanted. For this reason this isn't the best choice for those who plan to lead a very active lifestyle after the surgery.

Metal-on-Metal

Similar to metal and plastic hip replacements, the metal-on-metal implants use metal prosthetics to replace the ball and socket of the hip. This option does not use a plastic spacer between the parts. This has the benefit of not wearing out as quickly as the metal and plastic implant however has not yet proven to lengthen the life of the replacement. The metals rubbing together can release microscopic bits of metal into the body.

Hip replacement surgery has become an effective way to increase mobility and function in the daily life of someone with joint damage. Each type of replacement has benefits and concerns to consider. Your doctor can review the options and your personal factors and help you decided what type of hip replacement is right for you.
