FAQ

What Types of Metal-on-Metal Hip Implant Systems Are Commonly Used?

With all the advances in medicine lately, it is difficult to keep all of them straight. Many things such as cancer treatments, arthritis remedies and surgical advances are all becoming streamlined and improved.

Hip replacements are no different. There are several different types that are used today. With hip replacements being one of the most commonly performed orthopedic surgeries, it makes sense that there would be a lot of change and advancement with them over the years. We will talk about all the different types and how they compare with each other.

What is a Hip Implant System?

Hip implants are a type of prosthetic. This prosthetic is used to replace a hip joint that has been damaged by injury or more commonly by arthritis. When the joint becomes so damaged, the person may have trouble walking and will generally be in a good amount of pain with daily activities.

Arthritis occurs when someone has inflammation in the joint. When the joint becomes inflamed for a long period of time, it can actually wear down the cartilage in the joint. This eventually leads to the bones in the joint rubbing together and causing a lot of pain.

Hip implants are created to eliminate the pain. They replace the joint with synthetic materials so the person is no longer experiencing as much pain with every day life. They may even be able to do more with a hip implant than before.

What Types are Available?

There are several materials that can make up hip implants. You can discuss with your doctor which type would be best for you. Only you and your doctor can determine which one will work best for your situation.

•    Metal and plastic implant - These implants use metal for the ball and socket part of the prosthesis and place a plastic spacer in between

•    Metal-on-metal implant -  The ball and socket are both made with metal and there is no plastic spacer in between

•    Ceramic-on-ceramic implant - Use of a ceramic material for both the ball and the socket of the hip implant

•    Metal and highly crosslinked polyethylene - New type of implant material being used that is made from a durable type of polyethylene material and metal

How to Decide Which Hip Implant is Right

When you discuss the implants with your doctor, he will determine what your activity level is and what you would like it to be. They will also take into account your weight and other possible factors to look at which type of implant will be best for you. Hip implants should last for many years, so choosing the one that has the best durability should be the goal.
