What are Your Hip Implant Options?

Do you know all you can about the different options for hip implants? If you or a loved one is undergoing hip replacement surgery, it is important to do your research and determine if the implant that has been suggested is truly the best option. If anything seems unusual or you have concerns, you can raise them with your doctor before the surgery and ensure the right choices are being made for your body.

So what are the different types of implants?

Metal and Plastic Implants

This type of implant is made from a combination of metal and plastic components. They are currently the most common type of implant installed. The ball and the socket of the implant are made from metal, and the space in between is made from plastic. This prevents metal-on-metal contact, which reduces the amount of metal fragments released into the body.

The metals used in this type of implant are typically cobalt chrome, titanium, or stainless steel. The implant is held in place with cement or it is press-fit into the femur bone. Over time, new bone fuses with the implant and it is secured into position naturally.

All Metal Implants

This type of implant was thought to be advantageous because the wear-and-tear was not as severe as that of the plastic and metal combination implant. When a hip implant wears or becomes loose, a revision surgery is needed. This type of surgery is riskier than the initial placement surgery, so anything that postpones a second surgery might be viewed as positive.

Unfortunately, these metal-on-metal implants appear to not be worth their longer lifespan. The metal-on-metal contact creates friction that releases metal ions into the body. Many of these implants are being recalled and the FDA has issued recent warnings to avoid this type of implant unless it is absolutely the only option available for a patient.

Ceramic Implants

This type of implant is very resistant to wear. It is scratch resistant and creates a smooth joint that is long-lasting. Unfortunately, there have been instances in which ceramic implants have broken inside of the body. There is also a limited amount of long-term data concerning this type of implant, so time will tell if the durability is worth any potential side effects.

Each type of implant has advantages and disadvantages. Though one type of implant may be ideal for one patient, it could be the worst choice for another. You and your doctor will need to discuss all of the options and risks and determine which choice is best for you.
