Real Bone Hip Replacement Study

Item ID: 2579 | Category: Bones

This is a very quirky real human femur bone and half pelvis complete with prosthetic Hip replacement. A very interesting piece mounted on cast metal. The implant is most probably titanium. Height is 41cms tall, the pelvis bone removes for further study. Such joint replacement surgery is generally conducted to relieve arthritis pain or in some hip fractures. Hip replacement is currently the most common orthopaedic operation.
