Bone Infection

After a surgical procedure the patient is at risk of many complications. Hip replacement surgery is an especially risky type of operation because of the very in-depth nature of the procedure. Infection is not uncommon following a surgery, however if it spreads into the bone, the individual may be at risk of severe health problems.

If you or someone you love has suffered from bone infection because of an unreliable medical device such as DePuy hip implants, it is important that you understand your legal rights and the potential merits of legal action. Contact the hip recall attorneys of Williams Kherkher at 800-761-3187 to discuss your case with a member of our knowledgeable legal team.

Information on Bone Infection

Osteomyelitis, also known as bone infection, can be developed in many ways including undergoing orthopedic surgeries and using orthopedic devices. When the infection enters the bone or bone marrow, pus seeps into the blood vessels that run through the bone and they swell considerably. This will stop movement of blood in and out of the area causing the bone to die.

In an effort to fight this condition, the body will attempt to build new bones around the dying bone marrow. This replacement bone can cause serious complications for the patient, and if left untreated, may cause permanent deformities. Should the pus begin to leak out of the bone into the surrounding tissue, the infection will spread and the patient may develop an abscess.
