You are the other end of where most doctors make the mistakes, most times a doctor will do > 65.  40-42 seems to be the nominal angle although some devices are more or less sensitive.

I am in the high 40s.

32 degrees- it seems Dr. Gross is aiming for low angles recently - perhaps he knows something new?

Dr.Gross told me he has a saftey zone. I'm a small boned women he told me the angle would be between 35-45 degree approx. It seems the angles are getting to the lower degree...lyn

How do you all know the angle of your cup?  Is it just by asking the surgeon? 
Thanks,

Joe, you can also call their office. It's information that should be in your records, and available to you. I had them mail me copies, and they told me when I called.

Mine was 30 degrees on the copy of  exray, but in surgical report it showed 34 degrees for acetabular inclination. So I guess somewhere between 30-34 degrees. I will ask him when I see him on my 6 week followup. Lyn
