Patient Specific Hip Implants
There are many different types of hip systems available, however almost all of them involve an element of compromise.
For example, the small elderly female may require a small off-set stem with a large intra-medullary femoral component. At the other extreme a large male, with a previously active lifestyle may have a very narrow femoral canal but a wider off-set. The situation is made worse in a revision situation where there may be anatomical defects and soft tissue considerations.
A patient specific implant can offer the patient the best available implant solution. Our experience of designing over 3,700 custom made stems for both primary and revision cases enables surgeons to provide the best possible solution for each patient.
- Abnormal hip geometry
- Normal hip geometry but with bone defects in proximal femur
- Extensive bone defects along proximal femoral canal
- Severe bone destruction along proximal femur following the explant of a primary hip stem or infection
- Congenital dislocation of the hip (CDH)
- Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA)
