Patient information

The implantation of a hip joint, which is carried out hundreds of thousands of times in Europe every year, has been proven to be one of the most successful operations. There is a very high probability that you will regain a high degree of freedom from pain and mobility through this operation. For more than 20 years, our team has been technically responsible for joint replacement products, from development through production to application. We know that, in addition to good implant products, the most important success factors are the skills of the doctor treating you and your trust in cooperating with him or her.

We recommend the Swiss Rheumatism League as a neutral point of contact for initial information on all aspects of hip osteoarthritis and general hip problems. Many specialized clinics also have information on hip replacement surgery on their websites.

For a comprehensive picture of your situation and a well-founded decision-making process for or against a joint replacement operation, a discussion with your specialist is crucial. Don’t be afraid to get a second or even third opinion.

Why an Atesos implant?

The implants used and the implant-specific instruments are important for the long-term success of the operation. If the surgeon decides for an Atesos implant, you will receive a product of very high quality.

Note: With the Pyramid system, both parts of the joint can be implanted without bone cement; this is a so called biological fixation.

The implant components and the surgical instruments meet all legal requirements, have been tested according to international standards and are manufactured in proven Swiss quality.
