OXINIUM◊ Oxidized Zirconium
Some questions you are probably thinking about are: what kind of implant device you will be receiving, what is it made of, and why is your surgeon using a particular kind of device? If you haven’t discussed this with your surgeon, you should, because not all hip implant devices are made of the same material.
Due to significant advancements in technology, there is a new material for hip implant devices called OXINIUM◊ Oxidized Zirconium that is a superior metal for use in hip implants. This is due to its hardness, smoothness and resistance to scratching and abrasion. It also exhibits superior performance characteristics over the alternative material options of cobalt chrome and ceramic. Ask your orthopaedic surgeon about OXINIUM and if it is the right implant option for you.
