New Hip Replacement Study Shows Unprecedented 97.6% Survivorship Rate

Hip | Research | Total Joint Replacement

OrthoIndy has helped thousands of patients find true pain relief through hip and knee joint replacements.
Much of our success is staying up on — and often driving — the latest research. But what makes OrthoIndy a consistently trusted provider for patients is that we also recognize the tried-and-true solutions that work best for them.
Take, for example, one of the hip replacement devices our surgeons trust – the S-ROM hip prothesis. A new retrospective study of the S-ROM hip just released its findings in The Journal of Arthoplasty. This hip replacement device has been around unchanged for 30 years — and the study shows it has a 97.6% survivorship rate at 30 years.1

“The S-ROM hip is the most versatile hip on the market and can accommodate all hip anatomy variations. These recently published results give me great confidence in its long-term survivorship and avoiding repeat surgeries.”

Dr. Tim Hupfer, OrthoIndy surgeon

When is the right time for a hip replacement?

A total hip replacement may be necessary when chronic pain and poor function of your hip is hindering your quality of life and non-surgical treatments have brought no relief. Chronic hip pain and disability is often caused by arthritis. Other issues requiring total hip replacement may be a fracture or dislocation.

Hip arthritis can be extremely uncomfortable and easily affect your quality of life. If you are feel you’re missing out on activities and occasions you want to enjoy, these are signs you may need a hip replacement and it’s time to speak to one of our total joint specialists about your options.
Signs you need a joint replacement include:
• Joint pain during activity
• Delayed joint pain after activity
• Pain that interrupts your sleep
• Stiffness in your joint that makes it difficult to sit for long periods of time
• Inflammation and swelling in your joint
