The procedure consists of replacing the defective joint with a surgical implant. The socket of acetabula, as well as the head of the thigh bone are replaced. Filler is put into imbedded socket, making a sliding surface. The head of endoprosthesis is mounted on the stem cone. The sliding surfaces are made with materials like CrMoCo steel, polyethylene, ceramics and oxinium. The procedure takes approximately 90 minutes.
Before your surgery, you will undergo a wealth of pre-op tests in conjunction with the clinic's state-of the art imaging centre, including ECG, laboratory tests, X- ray examination of the heart and lungs, dental, gynaecological and urological examination, in part to inform use of medication for the control of blood coagulation.
