Caption: Total hip replacement. Coloured X-ray of a 70 year old woman's right hip, showing a prosthetic hip implant (pink). The implant is attached by a peg into the femur bone with surgical cement. The socket of the ball-and-socket joint, which is part of the pelvis bone, has also been replaced. The new joint is made of a composite metal alloy, and has replaced the original joint which was damaged by osteoarthritis.
