About OXINIUM(TM) Oxidized Zirconium

OXINIUM is a proprietary transformed metal alloy with a ceramic bearing surface. OXINIUM alloy is twice as hard and provides 1/2 the friction of CoCr implants and is extremely durable. This trailblazing technology is the only orthopaedic implant material to receive the ASM International Engineering Materials Award for outstanding achievement of a material used in the design and manufacture of products.

OXINIUM Oxidized Zirconium was developed and patented by many individuals within the Smith & Nephew Orthopaedic Research, Development, and Manufacturing groups. All of Smith & Nephew's major knee and hip implant systems, including the GENESIS(TM) II Total Knee System, the LEGION(TM) Total Knee System, the JOURNEY(TM) BCS Bi-Cruciate Stabilized Knee system, the JOURNEY DEUCE(TM) Bi- Compartmental Knee System, the SYNERGY(TM) Total Hip System and the ANTHOLOGY(TM) Total Hip System, are available with OXINIUM(TM) Oxidized Zirconium technology. The first OXINIUM Oxidized Zirconium component was implanted in 1995 with more than 230,000 hip and knee components implanted with remarkable clinical success.
