What is the Best Type of Hip Replacement?

One of the most common questions patients have when they decide to undergo hip implant surgery is “what type of hip implant is best for me?” The answer varies from person to person. What is a great option for one person might not work for someone else. The best thing you can do is learn as much as possible about your options and, with your doctor’s assistance, come to a conclusion about the option that is best for you.

Considerations

There are a few factors you and your doctor will want to consider during the consultation phase. First, you must choose whether you want a tried-and-true hip implant option or whether you feel more comfortable with the latest-and-greatest design. There will be pros and cons to either option, so take time to explore each.

Next, speak with your doctor about his usual strategy with hip implant surgery. Some surgeon’s prefer to use the same make and model again and again. This means he or she is likely very familiar with this option, but might not be as comfortable if you want something else. This requires a decision not only about your implant device, but also your surgeon. It is important to choose a surgeon who has installed your chosen implant device in the past, so if you have yet to receive a second opinion, now would be a good time to schedule an appointment.

Other things you will want to consider when choosing the best hip implant device for you is the estimated lifespan of the device and whether or not it is right for your specific condition. You will want to explore the side effects of a given device and determine how easy or difficult it will be for you to cope with those side effects. If a risk is too much for your current lifestyle, you should continue to explore your options.

Research

It is possible for patients to gather information about specific implant devices. Orthopedic supply companies are very eager to share information and market their products directly to consumers, but your decision about your implant must include input from your doctor. Feel free to conduct research and bring that information to your consultation appointment with your doctor. He or she can answer your questions and give you an overview of the pros and cons of different devices.

Remember, if you are hearing information directly from the manufacturer, it is likely to be more positive aspects of the device than negative ones, so consider the source of your information, as well as what you learn about each device.
