Caption

Hip replacement. Artwork showing bone cement (green) being injected, under pressure, into a hollowed out femur (thigh bone). The head of the femur has been surgically removed. It will be replaced by a prosthetic ball that will be anchored by a shaft inserted into the femur and secured by the cement. The majority of hip replacements are a result of osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disease that results in the loss of cartilage between the joint and the growth of bone in place of the cartilage. This causes pain, stiffness and loss of mobility.
