Frequently Asked Questions

Got any questions while we setup a call? Check our FAQ's below:

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.
