I had anterior approach and everything is fine. Good luck.

Apr 25, 2016 · What type of implants does Mayo use for hip replacements? in Joint Replacements

I have scheduled hip replacement surgery for June 2016. I am 53 and my problem is bone on bone. Do you think hip resurfacing is an option for me? If not, what type of implant is good for my age. I am 5’6″ and
150 lbs. female
Thank You.

What type of implants does Mayo use for hip replacements?

Thank you for your reply. I’m so sorry for the problems that you have had. Doctors aren’t using that type of replacement anymore are they?
I hope your hips are better now ? What did you use the 2nd time around?
I will read the info on google. I saw Dr. Blasser at Mayo in Jax’s. Have you heard anything about him? I want to use the anterior approach.
Did your arthritis move to your knees. I am only 53 years old. OMG I can’t believe I had this happen to me?

Thanks again for the info.

Did the implant cause the cobalt & chromium in your body. If so, can all implants cause this to happen. I am looking at hip surgery this summer

Thanks for your response.

What replacement did you have? What did you use for the replacement? Have you heard of Verilast hip technology?
