Press Fit Cup Hip Replacement

Pressfit Hip Replacement designs direct forces to the rim of the cup which minimizes the potential for miss-alignment when seated in the socket.

Bearing Material options available with different bearing surfaces. These are:

  • Metal-on-Polyethylene: The ball is made of metal and the socket is made of plastic (polyethylene) or has a plastic lining.
  • Ceramic-on-Polyethylene: The ball is made of ceramic and the socket is made of plastic (polyethylene) or has a plastic lining.
  • Metal-on-Metal: The ball and socket are both made of metal.
  • Ceramic-on-Ceramic: The ball is made of ceramic and the socket has a ceramic lining.
  • Ceramic-on-Metal: The ball is made of ceramic and the socket has a metal lining

Hemispherical titanium shell designed for excellent initial press-fit and long-term stability.
Biomimetic cementless coating technology.

  • Calcium phosphate (CaP) coating with a microcrystalline structure
  • Maintains substrate surface roughness, providing a large area for osseointegration
  • Room temperature electrolytic deposition process

An orthopaedic surgeon should determine which hip implant will offer the most benefit and least risk for each patient.
When making a recommendation, orthopaedic surgeons should consider several factors such as the patient’s age, weight, height, activity level, and cause of hip pain.
Hip surgery may involve total hip replacement or it may involve hip resurfacing.

Porous Metal Technology

The goal to build a structure that directly mimics the architecture of human bone. This process facilitates tissue in-growth and implant stability.

Modular Neck Hip Replacement

Restoring leg length, joint stability, and range of motion involve distinct surgical challenges.
The Modular Neck Hip Replacement introduces a system of modular stem and neck components designed to help the surgeon restore the hip joint center by addressing leg length, offset, and version independently.
The resulting array of neck options efficiently targets a broad range of male and female patient anatomies.

What about Hip Joint Resurfacing?

During hip resurfacing surgery, the femoral head is not removed. Instead the femoral head is trimmed and capped with a metal covering. Any damaged bone and cartilage within the socket are removed and replaced with a metal shell. In hip resurfacing surgery, both components are made of metal.
Anterior Minimally Invasive Surgery
The Anterior Minimally Invasive Surgery method requires a completely matching system of operating table with leg holder, instruments and the very best implants. During the operation, the anterior musculature beneath the small skin incision is merely displaced, but not severed. This considerably reduces the risk of damaging muscles, tendons, vessels or nerves. The special leg holder ensures that, despite the relatively small “field of vision” for the surgeon, the joint to be operated on can be optimally presented allowing good access to all areas. This protection of the soft tissues significantly reduces the danger of bleeding or inflammation. In addition, the abductors, the muscle group at the side, which is important for stabilizing the pelvis, is not affected. This means that muscle function can be achieved quickly after the operation which greatly increases recovery. Normally, an immediate full weight bearing of the new joint is already possible on the day of the operation.
The risks of a dislocation of the joint because of separated muscles or tendons are practically eliminated. And the frequently observed phenomenon of a bad gait or of a limp is also avoided. Other so-called minimally invasive entries (e.g. a rear, side, or combined entry) may also be characterized by relatively small skin incisions. However, in these interventions, muscles or tendons can often be impaired just as badly as with conventional methods. Only the externally visible scars are smaller, and the internal healing requires just as much time and rest as with conventional methods. Overall, the use of the Anterior Minimally Invasive Surgery method allows the re-establishment of the joint function to be accelerated significantly. All known risks of a hip prosthesis operation are reduced considerably. Normally, this makes it possible to take up all professional activities more quickly again to their full extent and also to participate in sport.

The Hip Replacement Surgeon

Dr. Stephan Tohtz is a specialist in modern hip replacement techniques and other corrective surgeries.
With over 20 years of surgical experience in trauma and orthopedic surgery he now holds the title of Chief Physician for Orthopedics and Trauma at HELIOS Hospital, Berlin.
His extensive experience with a full range of globally available hip replacement technologies makes him an excellent choice for your hip replacement surgery.

Why is the surgeon experience so important with Minimally invasive hip replacement techniques?

Minimally invasive surgery should be performed by a well-trained, highly experienced orthopedic surgeon.
Implant selection and placement is critical to long term success and this is a very specialized procedure.

The Hip Replacement Hospital

What about the facility?

While many hospitals will do a Hip Replacement Surgery the facility you choose is important.
Whenever you implant something into your body infection becomes a great concern.
One of the things we enjoy in Germany is a low overall rate of MRSA infection compared to much of the world.
In fact, Germany’s MRSA rate is about 2/5ths of the the US’s rate.
Then consider that we operate in a private, Orthopedic hospital.
This means no Emergency Room patients bringing in infections.
As a result, our MRSA rate in the hospital is essentially zero. Yes Zero!!
