I've had one hip replaced about five years ago. It was cemented in place and seems to be holding up fine. Now I need the second hip replaced. My surgeon is suggesting an uncemented implant. Will it hold up as well as my cemented hip?
Probably better! Long-term studies over a 30-year period of time show uncemented implants actually have less chance of loosening.

In one study of more than 6,500 total hip replacements (THRs), not one uncemented THR came loose. The cemented implants have a tendency to loosen during the second decade.

The increased survivorship for uncemented implants and improved durability have made it the new gold standad for THR.
