It’s twice as hip

Two-jointed implant increases mobility, Durango surgeon says

It’s twice as hip

Dr. Gary Scott, a surgeon with Durango Orthopedic Associates, says a new hip insert, the model on the left, offers greater flexibility than other artificial hips. Its metal ball sits atop a shaft driven into the femur. The model on the right represents a resurfacing in which a metal ball on the tip of the femur will nestle in a metal cup in the pelvis socket.
The ADMX3, shown above, offers something different for those who get hip replacements. It swivels at two points rather than just one. That, in turn, gives a person more mobility. greater mobility.greater mobility.
This X-ray shows a new mobile bearing hip system in a patient of Dr. Gary Scott’s.
