“Hip Replacement surgery is a procedure in which a doctor surgically removes a painful hip joint with arthritis and replaces it with an artificial joint often made from metal and plastic components. It is usually done when all other treatment options have failed to provide adequate pain relief.”

All about Total Hip Replacement surgery

Hip Replacement surgery has seen a significant leap with the launch of India's first Dual Mobility Hip System MDM X3. The first-of-its-kind Hip System is designed to relieve pain, enhance stability and improve the range of motion for patients suffering from severe hip joint disorder.

Dr. Ishwar Bohra, Sr. Joint Replacement Surgeon at BLK Super Speciality Hospital in Delhi is amongst the first few surgeons in India to have successfully performed surgery with MDM X3.

MDM X3 addresses the limitations of stability faced by conventional Hip Replacement Systems. The dual mobility system with screws utilises dual points of articulation that accommodates multi-directional movement, enhancing patient's active range of motion and reducing wear. The large head also allows a greater, more than normal range of motion than standard implants.

In this unique design, the movement occurs between the head and the high tech plastic mobile liner (X3). The mobile liner in turn moves against a highly polished metal cup which is fixed to the pelvis with screws making it a rigid and stable construct. This design is called Dual Mobility cup. In the earlier version, the cup could not be fixed to the pelvis making dual mobility hips highly prone to cup failures. Because of the large plastic head, this hip system makes the joint extremely stable so that active patients can engage in recreational and other sports activities.
