treatment, simple activities of daily living - walking, standing
up, dressing, and sleeping - become a struggle due to the
During total hip replacement (THR), the diseased hip joint is
removed and replaced with an artificial hip joint implant. In
over 90% of cases, THR results in dramatic pain relief
and return to normal functioning.

With hip implants generally lasting 20 years,
THR has been reserved for people over age
55. But an advanced ceramic hip implant
now opens the door to THR for younger,
more active patients.
Proven safe and effective, the new ceramic
implant has demonstrated superior wear
performance, meaning that it can be
expected to last even longer than its
metal/plastic implant "cousins."

to offer THR using the advanced ceramic hip implant.
