Exeter® Cementing our place in history

Share in over 50 years of esteemed heritage. The Exeter hip stem is an established cemented solution to total hip arthroplasty and continues to be a leading choice of implant as shown in several national joint registries.1,2 Since its launch in 1970, over 160 Exeter stems on average have been implanted per day.5 This hip system, which has remained a market leader for several decades3, is designed to accommodate an expansive variety of cases with one system.

Key benefits


With over 50 years of proven clinical history that has transformed the lives of over 2.1 million patients, Exeter has demonstrated successful clinical performance in peer-reviewed medical journals and national joint registries.1–5

In a minimum 20 year follow-up study of 382 cemented Exeter Universal THAs and mean patient age of 66.3 years, survivorship of the stem at 22.8 years was 99.0% with an endpoint of revision for aseptic loosening or lysis.7


Exeter offers a wide range of offset and body size variations to fit varying morphologies.

Offset-based system

Multiple offset options and body sizes allow fine-tuning of restoring the head center, independent of leg length and canal size.


One implant and instrument system that is designed to accommodate primary, revision, and hip fracture cases.

The collarless design of Exeter allows for independent correction of leg length and version. Combined with a wide range of offset options, Exeter is a versatile system for anatomic restoration.

Clinical evidence

In one study, the authors concluded “The hybrid Exeter V40 Trident seemed to produce the best overall results6 

In patients over 75 years old, early revision was 9.14x more common in the best three cementless stems compared to the best three cemented stems in the Australian registry.10 In another study featuring 32,644 primary total hip arthroplasties, cementless stems were found 14x more likely to cause intraoperative fractures, and 10x more likely to cause postoperative fractures within 30 days than cemented stems.11

“The Exeter cemented stem has excellent survivorship at minimum 20 years in young patients [107 patients under 55 years of age].”12 

No stem was revised for aseptic loosening in this series [featuring 540 total hip arthroplasties]. The contemporary Exeter V40 stem continues to perform well, and survival has remained comparable with that of the Exeter Universal stem.”13

Mako SmartRobotics combines three key components: 3D CT-based planning, AccuStop haptic technology, and insightful data analytics, into one platform that has shown better outcomes for your total knee, total hip and partial knee patients.7,8,13 

Mako SmartRobotics™ with Exeter empowers surgeons to know more through CT based planning, unlocking patient specific planning and robotic-arm assisted execution which is designed to help preserve bone and facilitate precise implant placement for both acetabular and femoral components. This system enables surgeons to more easily tackle muscle-sparing approaches through approach-specific registration.*

*Access to the Mako Program Analytics offering requires execution of a separate Mako Program Analytics agreement. 

Direct Anterior Reconstructive Technology

Exeter offers SOMA-designed short (125mm) stem options to meet the needs for muscle sparing approaches like Direct Anterior, and for patients with Dorr Type-A femurs.
