Background: Noncemented total hip arthroplasty has emerged as effective option in various disorders of hip in young patients and those with good bone stock. Method: Between 1992 and 2002, 34 patients underwent 47 uncemented total hip replacements. Preoperative and postoperative Harris hip scores were compared. Patients were followed up for a minimum period of 2 years and maximum of 10 years. Result: Mean Harris hip score improved from preoperative mean of 36.6 to 89 after average follow up of 5.7 years. Forty one hips had excellent or good result and one had poor result. There was no case of femoral stem failure and one case of acetabular component failure. Conclusion: Noncemented total hip arthroplasty gives excellent results in disabling disorders of the hip.
