About Hip Replacement
The demand for hip replacement is growing rapidly. It is estimated that the number of primary total hip replacements will increase by 174 percent -- to 572,000 -- in 2030. This is due in part to the growing number of Baby Boomers with osteoarthritis and the rise in obesity among the population.1

Important Safety Information
As with any medical treatment, individual results may vary. Only an orthopaedic surgeon can determine whether an orthopaedic implant is an appropriate course of treatment. There are potential risks, and recovery takes time. The performance of the new joint depends on weight, activity level, age and other factors.
