Smith & Nephew's highest priority is to deliver safe and effective medical technology to benefit patients. In alignment with this goal, we have decided to withdraw the optional metal liner component within the R3◊ Acetabular System following a review of the most recent data. This is a precautionary and voluntary measure.
This website was created to provide Patientsand Health Care Professionalswith facts about the reasons for the decision, along with Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's) that may be helpful to you.
Thank you for taking the time to visit this website.
