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.
