Chances are also pretty good that this means you have questions... lots and lots of questions. We understand and have designed this site to answer as many of these questions as possible. However, we strongly advise that you also talk to your surgeon about these questions and about all of the information you've found on this site.

Only by talking with your surgeon about all of your options will you be able to determine the right treatment for you.

The POLAR3 Total Hip Solution

One of the most exciting hip replacement options on the market today is the POLAR3 Total Hip Solution. Although we call it a single solution, it is actually made up of three proprietary technologies that, when combined, can deliver extraordinary results that are designed to improve surgical outcomes and maximize patient satisfaction. Of course, you shouldn't just take our word for it. Instead, let's look at what is being reported in one of the largest joint registries around the world.

According to the National Joint Registry of England and Wales, the POLAR3 is the "best performing" cementless hip combination at 7 years. And from a patient satisfaction perspective, this same registry also reported that approximately 25% more patients reported having excellent outcomes with POLARSTEM compared to the class average of cementless hips. It is also worth noting that the vast majority of these cases used the entire POLAR3 construct.

The POLAR3 System is a total hip solution, meaning that it includes a hip stem, a hip head and an acetabular cup. Together, these three components are designed to replace the ball and socket structure of your natural hip.

Now, let's take a closer look at the POLAR3 elements

Important safety notes:

Hip replacement surgery is intended to relieve hip pain and improve hip function. However, implants may not produce the same feel or function as your original hip. There are potential risks with hip replacement surgery such as loosening, fracture, dislocation, wear and infection that may result in the need for additional surgery. Longevity of implants depends on many factors, such as types of activities and weight. Do not perform high impact activities such as running and jumping unless your surgeon tells you the bone has healed and these activities are acceptable. Early device failure, breakage or loosening may occur if you do not follow your surgeon's limitations on activity level. Early failure can happen if you do not guard your hip joint from overloading due to activity level, failure to control body weight, or accidents such as falls. Talk to your doctor to determine what treatment may be best for you.
