Should you have Uncemented Hip Resurfacing? By Dr. Thomas Gross PDF Print E-mail

Dr. Bose and Dr. De Smet’s response regarding their opinion on the subject of Dr. Gross’ paper on Uncemented.

Dr. De Smet’s response
Dear Vicky,

The loosenings I see from resurfacing, you have to wait for at least 3 years before you are practically sure there is no problem.

So 1 year follow up for me is not enough to implant it in all my patients!!

Greetz, Koen
