What’s Type of Hip Implant is Best for Me?

There are several choices you will need to make concerning your hip implant, but one of the main choices is whether your implant device will be made from ceramic or metal. There are pros and cons in each instance, but metal-on-metal implants typically get the most attention. These implants have experienced a variety of malfunctions, but are still recommended for some people. If you are trying to determine which type of implant is right for you, read on.

Metal Implants

A metal-on-metal implant features a metal head and metal lining. There are also metal implants that feature polyethylene linings. The metal portion of the implant is typically constructed of stainless steel, titanium, or cobalt chrome alloy. Metal-on-metal implants wear better than other styles, cutting down on the amount of debris that is released into the body. This debris is believed to be the main catalyst for the loosening and need for replacement of implants. Metal-on-metal implants are also self-polishing and less likely to dislocate.

Unfortunately, metal implants have a downside. Though they wear slowly, they do wear, and the debris released from the implant is metal. These fragments travel through the body in the bloodstream and can affect the health of someone with this type of implant. At the moment, many of the metal-on-metal implants on the market are under recall and it is expected that several thousand current patients will need a replacement implant. Metal-on-metal implants are also more expensive than other options.

Ceramic Implants

Your other implant option is made from ceramic. This can be a combination of a ceramic head and polyethylene cup lining or completely made from ceramic. A ceramic-on-metal model was also recently introduced to the market.

Ceramic implants are hard and smooth, so they wear well. The wear rate of a ceramic-on-poly implant is better than that of a metal-on-poly model, but ceramic-on-ceramic has the best rate. Ceramic-on-ceramic implants are also viewed positively because when they do wear, they do not release metal into the body.

Unfortunately, ceramic hip replacements have some disadvantages. There have been episodes of catastrophic failure with this type of implant. Ceramic-on-ceramic implants are more expensive than ceramic-on-poly models, so your options might be limited by price. Ceramic hip implants are usually considered a good option for patients who need long-lasting implants because they are younger. They are also a better option for those with concerns about metal debris, which especially includes women of child-bearing age.
