Re: Titanium vs. aluminum strength to weight ratios...

I know (body doesn't react)..however...the bone gives, but the titanium doesn't...the source of most of my pain.  I have a "bone-in" hip replacement.  Unlike hip replacements for the elderly, which are cemented,  a bone-in has holes and your bones grow through and around.  ...always a fascinating topic.
