Ceramic on Ceramic- Ceramicised Material

Bearing affects your hip’s mobility, flexibility and range of motion, as well as how the implant will stand up over time and how stable it will be in your body. Bearings can be made of ceramic or polyethylene (medical grade plastic). At Elite Orthopaedics, we use the best in class bearing options that are proven to withstand the demand of your lifestyle.

Ceramic on Ceramic

Ceramic-on-polyethylene

  • The ceramic head is tougher than metal head and smoother which reduces friction, thereby resulting in lesser polyethylene wear
  • Ceramic is biologically inert, and hence well tolerated in the human body and almost no scope of metal allergy

Ceramic-on-Ceramic

  • These bearings are especially relevant for high-demanding Indian lifestyle or for patients who would like to pursue an active lifestyle including activities like sports, yoga, hiking etc
  • Newer material like delta ceramic have been engineered to provide excellent WEAR properties along with unmatched STRENGTH and STABILITY

The Ceramic on ceramic technology offers much lower wear than metal on metal or poly components- meaning longer lasting and avoiding debris that can be harmful to the body. Lots of concerns over metal ions having carcinogenic properties, not suitable for young pregnant women, metal ions causing allergies etc have come up worldwide in recent times-ceramics don’t have this issue. The material used is “Delta ceramic which is the new generation advanced ceramic technology and is up to 30 times as hard as the previous ones, overcoming concerns of cracking or fracture or breakage of the ceramic. The demand today is for an implant that could last a life time to avoid revision surgery-a well implanted Ceramic on ceramic with small stem could potentially deliver that without compromising on range of motion and stability.

COC  Hip Replacement

  • Large head ceramic on ceramic cup technology leading to higher range of motion and greater stability-ideally suited for the Indian patient with demands like sitting cross legged- Puja and Namaz & using the toilet
  • Much lower wear than metal on metal or poly components- meaning longer lasting and avoiding debris that can be harmful to the body.
  • Lots of concerns over metal ions having carcinogenic properties, not suitable for young pregnant women, metal ions causing allergies etc have come up worldwide in recent times- ceramics don’t have this issue.
  • The Material used is BIOLOX DELTA which is the new generation advanced ceramic technology and is up to 30 times as hard as the previous ones, overcoming concerns of cracking or fracture or breakage of the ceramic.
  • It is ideally suited for small Indian anatomies- accommodating a XL head in a small cup as well as younger high demand patients.
  • The demand today is for an implant that could last a life time to avoid revision surgery- a well implanted Hip with a well implanted stem could potentially deliver that without compromising on range of motion and stability
  • People in good health, live very active lives and expect to live well into their eighties. Clearly these are “high demand “patients who deserve a high quality hip replacement that will serve them well for the rest of their lives. These arthritic patients stand to benefits from the ceramic hip prosthesis.
  • This surgery can be done minimally invasive- very small skin cuts and allowing ambulation next day

It is indeed the hip for the Lifetime!
