Edward J. Haboush in 1953. In 1956, McKee and Watson-­ Farrar developed a “total” hip with an acetabular cup of metal that was cemented in place. Metal-on-metal wear products probably led to high complication rates. It was John Charnley (1911–1982) (Figure 3), working at an isolated tuberculosis sanatorium in ­Wrightington, ­Manchester, England, who invented the first really successful hip joint prosthesis. The femoral stem, ball head, and plastic acetabular cup proved to be a reasonable solution to the problem of damaged joint replacement.
