I am 45 and had my femoral neck broken last december (1999). I have a partial HR, it will last 5-7 years before a THR. I have read a lot of material and it is quite to general knowledge that either biking or swiming are the best for “hips”. There are the newly improved materials and techniques that would allow us to walk also w/o concern because of a longer durability. The metal-on-metal or ceramic-on-ceramic would last much longer than standard poliethylene (not cross linked). Regards,

Enrique
