Concrete Benefits Found With Cementless Hip Replacement

Vital Information:

  • Bone specialists report that most patients receiving artificial hip implants that were held in place without cement had good results for as long as 15 years after their surgery.
  • An observer notes that he believes cementless hip replacements can last for the rest of the patient's life.
  • Long-lasting cementless hip replacements would be particularly attractive to younger patients, who wouldn't need to replace the implant after about 15 years, as is common with cemented varieties today. Researchers report patients as old as 90 had good results with the cementless devices as well.
