Description

The ANTHOLOGY◊ system is a hip stem (femoral implant with a neck and ball) used for primary hip replacement surgery. The hip joint is a ball and socket joint, connecting the femur with the pelvis. The head of the femur, shaped like a ball, fits tightly into the acetabulum, forming the ball and socket joint of the hip, allowing the leg to move forward and backward, side to side, and rotate right and left. Hip replacement surgery involves adding a femoral implant into the femur and adding an acetabular cup in the pelvis to help restore range of motion in the hip.
