Hip Implant

Hip implant surgery, commonly hip replacement surgery, is among the most common orthopaedic procedures performed today. In a total hip replacement, the native ball-and-socket hip joint is replaced with a prosthetic hip implant or prosthesis. The type of hip implant chosen by the surgeon will depend upon the age of the patient, the patient’s activity level and the surgeons preference, among other factors.

Hip implants are made from a variety of materials and can be used in a variety of combinations such as metal-on-plastic, metal-on-metal, ceramic-on-ceramic and ceramic on plastic. There are pros and cons with each type of hip implant and your orthopedic surgeon can tell you if a ceramic hip implant or another type of hip implant is best for you and your lifestyle.
