Cutting Edge Innovation in Joint Implants
Not all Implants are built the same. We are Biocore9 and we specialize in design, manufacturing, and sales of the orthopedic joint replacements. Our implants are state of the art with advanced technology designed with the patient and surgeon in mind. These features include natural stability through bone ingrowth, enhanced biocompatibility, and improved durability for long lasting implants and patients satisfaction.
Better Implants, Better You
With a focus on a bone-preserving philosophy, our resurfacing systems are meant to be introduced through a less invasive surgery and lower blood loss as compared to a total
arthroplasty, meaning you can get back to
your life quickly and pain free
We are here to help

Check out our implant's unique features
Bone-preserving stems allow for less invasive surgery and help to avoid stress-shielding of the bone
The implants surface is enhanced with Ceramic Titanium Nitride coating to maximize the biocompability, lubricity, surface harness, and scratch resistance
TiN ceramic coating Porous Coating provides significantly better environment for biological fixation.
You have questions, We have answers
Am I a candidate?You are the perfect candidate if you are experiencing hip or shoulder joint pain due to post-traumatic arthritis, osteoarthritis, or rheumatoid arthritis. Patient's with painful join arthoplasty can also be treated through our revision portfolio when sufficient bone stock exists to stabilize our resurfacing heads.
What are our implants made from?Our replacement systems are manufactured from Ti-6Al-4V alloy (ASTM F136) with a Titanium Nitride (TiN) thin film ceramic coating. The titanium nitride coating is an inert, highly adherent, near diamond hard surface coating, with thicknesses of 6-8 μm on articular surfaces.
What happens during surgery?During surgery, surgeons will anesthetize their patients and orient the body into an accessible and stationary position for surgery. Incisions are made to expose the bone. The bone is drilled to allow for the stem to be inserted. Then the bone is reamed to the hemispherical shape of the inside of the implant. The implant is impacted into position and the patient is closed up. You can find more details in our surgical brochures.
How long is recovery?Typically recovering from joint surgery to full range of motion takes 6 to 12 weeks.
What are the symptoms of joint arthritis?Joint arthritis is typically the degeneration of cartilage in joints resulting in pain, stiffness, tenderness, swelling, and decreased range of motion of the joint. The causes of arthritis vary. If you are experiencing pain in your joints, talk to your doctor to diagnose potential arthritis and if implants are necessary to treat it.
