Tony Rands

I am a 78 year old male who has been jogging/running for over 60 years. My right hip has been been increasingly troublesome over the last 5 years, and recently has deteriorated sharply. Xrays indicate a replacement hip is required, and I am determined to continue running. Normally I run around 50 miles a month.  I would appreciate it if I could get some guidance as to the type of ball/socket combination might be the most suitable.  Thank you.

  1. Hi Tony, while the technology has vastly improved with all of the different types of hip replacement products (I have a Stryker Hip with a ceramic ball and highly cross-linked poly ethylene cup). I have been told that ceramic on ceramic will last the longest.

    1. Thank you very much for coming back to me, every bit of information is useful. I have my first clinic with the consultant on Monday, and I want to be as informed as possible.
