Ceramic Hip Replacement
Ceramic hip implants are among the newer types of hip replacement implants being used for hip replacement, offering greater resistant to damage and smooth movement of the joint.
Ceramic devices appear to cause far less inflammation and few, if any, pseudo tumors.
This appears true whether the device is all-ceramic, ceramic-and-metal, or ceramic-and-plastic.
Many surgeons today consider them to be an improvement over traditional metal-and-plastic implants in which the deterioration of plastic can lead to the gradual buildup of debris around the joint.
