less invasive and anterior approach surgical techniques, bone conservation, and advanced bearing options," said Joseph M. DeVivo, president of Smith & Nephew Orthopaedics. "The SMF hip illustrates our drive to deliver new technology for active patients who suffer from osteoarthritis hip pain."

About VERILAST Technology

The SMF Hip System offers surgeons seven unique femoral neck positions, which allows them to choose from among Smith & Nephew's portfolio of advanced bearing combinations. For instance, VERILAST Technology, available exclusively from Smith & Nephew, consists of femoral heads made from OXINIUM™ Oxidized Zirconium articulating on highly cross-linked polyethylene. OXINIUM material is a metal alloy whose surface takes on the hard, wear-reducing properties of ceramic during a proprietary heating process, while retaining the strength of the underlying metal. Since it has the abrasion resistance of a ceramic, it reduces implant wear by 98-percent(1) when coupled with a cross-linked polyethylene cup, compared to traditionally used implant materials (cobalt chrome and standard polyethylene).
