    In this video, Dr. Garino speaks about the medical community's findings regarding noise related to total hip replacement. Dr. Garino points out that most audible noise takes the form of "pops" or "clicks", and that most noises, such as "squeaking" are usually temporary.

      In this video, he referred to one implant "system" in particular that was frquently squeaky - but he never said which one. Or did I miss it? Does anyone know? Why would he withhold the information? :sct:Thanks.

        No, you didn't miss it - but he also said it was a reliable device that didn't wear out and didn't fracture.
