Hip implants like the Rejuvenate system are used for correcting joint failure caused by a variety of conditions like osteoarthritis. The Rejuvenate system, released in February of 2010, is a modular system designed to re-create a patient’s original hip, involving both the head of the femur and the socket of the pelvis, with necks and stems composed of cobalt and chromium in the neck and a titanium coating on the stem.
