((i skiied two years ago i didnt ski last year.))
BEAR IN MIND LYING IN A HOSPITAL BED IS UNUSUAL FOR ARTHUR SCANTLEBURY HE'S 69... BUT HE'S A YOUNG 69. . FOR A GUY WHO HAS DONE TRIATHLONS.... SUFFERING SEVERE HIP PAIN CAUSED A MARKED CHANGE IN HIS LIFESTYLE.

SOT: ARTHUR SCANTLEBURY/PATIENT

i bicycle i run until i had this hip problem.//i couldn't even walk for a while.
AND THAT'S WHEN ARTHUR DECIDED TO GET A HIP TRANSPLANT TO GET HIM OUT OF PAIN AND ACTIVE AGAIN. . BUT BECAUSE ARTHUR IS SO YOUNG, HE'S EXPECTED TO LIVE A LONG TIME... THAT MAKES HIM A POOR CANDIDATE FOR A HIP TRANSPLANT... BECAUSE THE ARTIFICIAL HIP WEARS OUT OVER A DECADE OR SO.

SOT: DR. MICHAEL RIEBER/ORTHOPEDIST, ST. BARNABAS HOSPITAL (QUICK)
SOT:you're forty years oold and no one wants to operate on you because

you're hip is going to wear out in ten--fifteen years.// so these guys don't get surgery.. no.....so what happens to them... //they don't work some get addicted to apin medication .
STANDUP: the probe with the standard prosthesis is that this plastic over time
disintegrates and it causes the tough bone to disintegrate--- not so

with this ceramic prosthesis.

SOT: DR. RIEBER

so this is the future of hip replacing surgery.
NAT SOT: It moves jst as well.. it's smooth it has just as much motion.


THIS IS WHAT ARTHUR GOT...A FINELY GROUND AND POLISHED CERAMIC HIP.... THAT HAS A LIFETIME GUARANTEE... IT'S THOUGHT. IT'S IN THE FINAL PHASE OF FDA TESTING... BUT IT'S HOPED WILL BE APPROVED WITHIN A YEAR OR SO.

SOT: (B-ROLLED) isn't it susceptible to breaking? these ceramics now

can tolerate more than 17000 oun ds of force. FOR THE FIFTEEN PERCENT OF HIP REPLACEMENT PATIENTS UNDER THE AGE OF 50.... IT WILL NO DOUBT MEAN A LOT. ...MAYBE EVEN MORE FOR THE SENIORS-- LIKE ARTHUR-- WITH THEIR EYES FIXED ON THE FINISH LINE. DR. MIKE ROSEN, CBS NEWS.))
