ReCerf® Ceramic Hip Resurfacing

ReCerf® is not yet on general release with CE-approval (MatOrtho® is a UK-based company) and its availability around the world is subject to local regulatory and hospital approvals. Unfortunately the time to approval from application is not in our control and can vary between countries and hospitals.

When approved, ReCerf® will be available for patients who meet criteria determined by the surgeons, all of whom are world-experts in hip replacement and hip resurfacing. Such criteria are part of a safe and responsible approach to introducing new technologies and are defined for the benefit of everyone, particularly patients.

We as a manufacturer are not able to comment on any individual circumstances, however we are in contact with and supporting the surgeons who will access ReCerf® when it becomes available in their region.

Please continue to consult with your surgeon who we understand awaits approval to prescribe ReCerf®.
