Total Hip Replacement

Hip replacement is one of the most important surgical advances of this century. This surgery helps more than 300,000 Americans each year1 to relieve their pain, and get back to enjoying normal, everyday activities. Hip replacement involves the removal of arthritic bone ends and damaged cartilage and replacing them with prosthetic implants that replicate the hip joint.

Delta Ceramics and X3® Advanced Bearing Technology

Latest Advances in Bearing Materials

Many things including patient weight, activity level and implant bearing surface can affect the durability of a hip implant. The bearing surface is defined as the two parts of the artificial hip that glide together throughout motion. In total hip surgery, the bearing surfaces are called the femoral head and the acetabular insert. A variety of materials are available for each of these components including cobalt chrome metals, plastics and ceramics. Over 90% of patients receiving hip replacements achieve complete relief from pain and significant improvement in joint function.* However, artificial hips are still subject to wear and this wear may affect the long-term life of an implant. In recent years, there have been significant advances in bearing materials which are designed to extend the life of the implants. You should talk to your physician about the best implant for you.
