FAQ

Among researchers creating newer hip replacement systems, the goal of preserving healthy bone has become increasingly important.  Conserving as much bone as possible can reduce negative outcomes like leg length disparity, and allow the patient to receive a less radical type of artificial hip if the original system needs to be replaced in the future.  The CONSERVE system is one such type of hip replacement.  It consists of a round covering that fits on top of the femur, and a cup-like component that fit within the hip socket.

This type of implant is intended for younger and more active people, since artificial hips tend to wear out over time and the younger someone is, the more likely they will need a replacement later. With a system like this, it can be replaced by a standard artificial hip.
This device is designed to be extremely stable and resistant to dislocation, and to provide a good range of motion: up to 170 degrees, compared to 130 or 140 for some other systems.


The Conserve hip is made from chromium and cobalt. And like all metal on metal products, it leads to the inevitable outcome of metal particles wearing off the surface and entering the surrounding tissues. The metal particles accumulate and turn into a sort of black sludge, irritating the tissues and causing pain and potential wear that can make the artificial joint loosen and speed the need for replacement.  The irritation can even cause “pseudotumors” that press on nerves and arteries.

The other danger is of the metal ions leaching into the bloodstream, causing metal poisoning (metallosis). This can lead to a variety of systemic symptom including brain fog, fatigue and heart trouble.

When a patient develops these symptoms, the treatment is typically to remove the existing artificial hip and replace it with a metal on ceramic or plastic hip. Doing so will ease the symptoms of metallosis as the level of metal gradually goes down.  (There is no way to remove the metal currently in a person’s bloodstream; it must gradually be filtered out by the kidneys and liver.) Having the hip be properly aligned can reduce wear, but there is no way to ensure that dangerous levels of wear will not occur.
