I recently visited with my orthopedic surgeon who said my hip is wearing out two quickly, That the bone is deterating and that it will not last 15 years. He says that the 2nd hip will not last as long as the first due to lack of bone. Are there any new techniques for replacing the bone mass behind the joint
