What is the average # of years, a total non-cemented hip replacement will last ?

I am currently scheduled for a total hip replacement on Jan. 17th. which will also be a non-cemented hip replacement. My doctor is suggesting this because of my age of 50. Thus, he states that when I am 60-63 I will probably have to have yet another hip replacement.
