University Of Bath

Metal on metal hips have been one of worst failures in recent years for orthopaedic implants. This talk will describe the history of the current metal on metal failure and discuss some of the reasons why might have occurred. It will also consider the reasons that wear debris arising from the trunnion is worse in terms of biological activity then that arising from the bearing surfaces.

Professor Richie Gill is the Professor of Healthcare Engineering at the University of Bath. His research area is Bioengineering with a particular interest in Orthopaedics. Richie has a background in both experimental and numerical methods. Much of his research has involved modelling of human musculoskeletal system, using kinematic and finite element methods. Particular areas of interest are hip and knee joint function, disease initiation and treatment.
