Frequently Asked Questions

Are metal ions only present for one year after surgery?

No. It is well documental that metal ion levels are higher in the first one to two years after implantation of metal-metal bearings. After this initial "run in" period , the levels drop to a much lower constant rate for the remainder of the implant life.
