Hip Replacement

Summit Bone and Joint performs hip replacement surgery using press-fit implants. Press-fit implants, unlike cemented implants, are designed to allow bone tissue to grow into the implant's porous coating. This process is called bony in-growth and can potentially provide an extremely stable joint replacement for increased longevity and decreased pain. Press-fit hip implants are made from titanium alloy. Titanium alloy is also more flexible than other implant alloys, which helps transfer stress to your thighbone. The ability of your implant to efficiently transfer normal weight-bearing stress to your thighbone can potentially increase your implant's stability and longevity.
