Have you experienced painful complications and other symptoms which required a revision surgery following the initial hip replacement procedure?
Device failures from Metal-on-Metal Hip Implants failures are on the rise and put patients at increased risk for devastating complications, injuries, and need for additional costly corrective surgeries. Thousands of hip implant patients have suffered injuries including chronic pain, metal toxicity (increased levels of Chromium and Cobalt), tissue damage, bone damage, dislocation, pseudotumor, metallosis, and revision surgery. The FDA has recalled a number of metal-on-metal hip implants while others remain on the market. Tens of thousands of lawsuits have been filed across the nation holding the manufacturers of metal-on-metal hip implants accountable for failing to warn the public of the risk associated with these devices.
