    Title: Metallography of Alloy Biomaterial Hip Implants

    Speaker: Kelsey Torboli, Applications Engineer, Struers Inc.

    Total hip replacement (THR) surgery replaces a worn-out or damaged hip joint with an artificial joint, restoring function and reducing pain for the patient. The artificial joint is meant to last for many years, so materials engineers must choose a material that can withstand for the harsh conditions of the body and mechanical forces of daily use. In some components, surface treatments and coatings are used to achieve osteointegration between implant and bone.

    In this webinar, attendees will learn about:

    • Basics of a total hip replacement
    • Metallography of the femoral head and stem
    • Metallography of the acetabular cup and its surface treatments
