Taperloc Complete Hip System builds on the clinically proven Taperloc hip stem.1-3
Launched in 1982, the Taperloc Hip Stem is the longest clinically referenced hip stem with a wedge shape, titanium substrate, and proximally circumferential titanium porous plasma sprayed design.1-3
Design built on the Taperloc stem (launched in 1983), the longest clinically referenced1-3 primary hip stem with:
Proximally circumferential titanium porous plasma sprayed design
Designed to Treat a Range of Patient Anatomies
Microplasty (35 mm length reduction)
Consistent Sizing (1 mm increments)
Designed to provide optimal interchangeability, O.R. efficiency, and accurate matching of the patient's femur without the need to remove additional bone
Based on the clinically proven Taperloc Hip Stem

The Taperloc Complete Hip System has since become the industry standard in cementless hip arthroplasty.1 Combining unmatched clinical success with Zimmer Biomet’s commitment to product innovation, the Taperloc Complete Hip System has design enhancements that are intended to help surgeons restore leg length, stability, offset, and range of motion accurately and consistently. The Taperloc Complete Hip System comprises of the following femoral prosthesis offerings:
Taperloc Complete Femoral Stem
Features a reduced distal geometry in which a gradual reduction of the stem substrate occurs distal to the porous coating level
Taperloc Complete Microplasty® Femoral Stem
Features a reduced stem length from the standard length stem to better address minimally invasive techniques, providing an alternative to femoral resurfacing while offering a solution in cases where a bone conserving prosthesis is desirable
Taperloc Complete XR 123° Femoral Stem
Helps address femurs with a more varus neck by allowing for additional offset to properly restore hip biomechanics and soft tissue tensioning
