Still Life Femur


This is the femur component of a total hip replacement. It is an Exeter stem.

This photo is a tiny glimpse into the job I adore as an operating theatre nurse with orthopaedics being my main base and specialty.

This is the hip implant on top of one of the metal theatre trollies, and I love how it turned out!

My boss when he gave it to me said "Here's a present for you, it was refunded by the rep as the attatchment had a fault... nice ornament for you?!".

to which I replied with thanks, and that I'd get it tattooed where it will inevitably go when I'm old and needing my hip replaced ;)

This is a few hundred pounds worth of implant here... what shall I do with it?!  Frame!? LOL!

  5. I love the way this object looks captivating in this shot- it's clean lines gleaming. So so simple and yet so so stunning. Really like it. It looks a bit like a shiny metal boomerang or is that a just me??
