That's what my surgeon said he prefers and uses on all of his young patients when he can. The ball is ceramic, the liner is a vitamin-E infused HXPE
I find this video to be pretty cool: https://youtu.be/tbRibQsIowM
Biolox Delta: https://www.ceramtec...lox/ball-heads/
Liner material: http://www.zimmerbio...lyethylene.html
I'm hopeful to get 30+ years out of the ball and liner, would be nice to only need 1 revision.

I am now at 2.5 weeks and am using one crutch as I wobble without.
I really only feel the cut now usually. I still can't lie on the right side but it was suggested that actually won't happen until the staples are out. That is happening on Sunday.
Today was the first day I actually thought how things might be moving forward, not having pain. I think that is the biggest thing... I don't think I realized how much being in the pain for three years actually affected so much. I am looking forward to January and being cleared to do a lot more. There is a small chance of golfing before Xmas, but I think since we are heading out I will wait until I return to actually try.
Long story short, things are literally improving day to day. If you know of anyone debating getting it done, as of right now, I would say do it, it seems to be good so far.
