Traditional hip replacement uses the metal and plastic implants which wear out easily. The wear-out implants may result in bone loss and infections. Patients will feel pain or limp because the implants may loosen over time. Additional surgery is required to fix the issue.
In Taiwan, Metal-on-Metal Implant and Ceramic-on-Ceramic Implant are two most common materials used in hip replacement surgery. The two materials are designed to be the most resistant to wear, and can increase the longevity of artificial joints. Patients will have better range of motions and lower probability of dislocation of implants due to the use of larger femoral heads.
