-- Question: What Are The Different Types Of Hip Replacements Available Today And What Are The Pros/Cons Of Each?
Answer: There are two main kinds of hip replacements: the cementless and the ones using cement.
Nowadays, most people use the cementless type of hip replacements. It seems to offer a little bit of faster recovery in terms of the whole rehabilitation process.
One of the unique things that are being done now that might even provide fast recovery is actually resurfacing the hip that has degenerated or become arthritic. And that, theoretically, with just the resurfacing of the hip, might even provide faster rehabilitation and better outcomes.
