Is Ceramic the Safest Solution for THA Bearings?

    Luigi Zagra, MD, PhD, from Istituto Ortopedico Galeazzi IRCCS in Milan, Italy, has been using ceramic bearing surfaces in his total hip arthroplasty patients for years – generally ceramic-on-ceramic for young, active patients and ceramic-on-polyethylene for older patients.

    Dr. Zagra discusses his indications for ceramic bearings, as well as the outcomes he has observed in his patients who have received a ceramic-on-polyethylene bearing.
