Total hip Replacement was popularized by Sir John Charnley of England. He advocated Cemented total hip replacement. Total hip replacements with cement have a high success rate for over forty years.
They are one of the most successful orthopedic procedures. In a cemented total hip replacement, both the acetabular and femoral components are cemented. Cemented hip replacement is the gold standard in elderly patients.
