What is Uncemented Hip Replacement?
Uncemented hip prosthetics have pegs and screws that hold the prosthesis and the bone in a firm location until the new bone growth develops a secure attachment. Once a strong bond has formed the bone and the prosthesis, uncemented hip replacement provides a low possibility of loosening and weakening with time.
Modern hip replacement approaches to Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA), are considered major advancements in the orthopaedic field based on a variety of prosthetic components, expertise, and effectiveness. To make various changes in the femoral head, orthopaedic surgeons use a variety of options such as;
