Considering A New Hip? Ask About Cementless Designs
If your bones are strong and healthy, you and your doctor may want to consider foregoing cement, but be prepared for longer rehab.
In recent years, the use of cement in artificial hips has been largely eclipsed by the development of newer cementless implants that bond directly with your bones, making for a stronger, longer-lasting joint. However, if osteoporosis renders your bones too soft to hold an implant securely in place, cement is still the preferred method of treatment.
