ICJR INTERVIEWS: Using Ceramic Bearings in THA

    Gwo-Chin Lee, MD, from the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, has been actively involved in researching the use of ceramics in patients undergoing total hip arthroplasty (THA) – and that research has made him a believer in the value of these bearing surfaces.

    We asked Dr. Lee to discuss the pros and cons of ceramic bearings and to share some of the conclusions he and his colleagues have drawn from their research on the use of these implants in THA patients.
