How long will a titanium hip replacement device last?

Filed under: Hip Replacement — admin @ 8:29 am

I had a hip replacement 4 years ago and still jog, play golf and stay very active. My doctor says I can jog up to 3 miles on a treadmill or on the road. Another doctor who specializes in replacing hip replacements says I should not ever jog. Just a little confused.

If it was installed correctly, you will wear out before the hip.

  2. I have titanium rodes in my back and the Dr told me they would last a life time.

  3. I have had my titanium hip for 17 years. I still work in my yard for hours a day and I stand on my feet for hours as a cashier. Sometimes I’m a little sore, but after a good nights sleep, I’m good to go again.
