Paget’s Disease of the Bone and Hip Replacement

One of the most common causes of hip replacement surgery is a little-known bone disorder called Paget’s disease of the bone. This incurable ailment is most prevalent in individuals over 40 years of age, and the condition can manifest itself differently from patient to patient. When Paget’s disease affects the hip, a hip implant may be effective in minimizing the health risk to sufferers. Unfortunately, some hip implant devices have been known to cause harmful side effects.

At Williams Hart, we believe that hip implant patients have a right to safe, high-quality medical products. If your hip implant device has failed, contact a DePuy hip implant lawyer right away at 800-761-3187 to discuss your legal options.

Symptoms of Paget’s Disease of the Bone

Doctors are often able to diagnose Paget’s disease through close analysis of x-rays. However, there are some common symptoms of Paget’s disease that can alert your doctor to your health condition:

  • Bone and joint pain
  • Bone fractures
  • Tingling in the affected area
  • Partial paralysis

Signs of Hip Implant Failure

If Paget’s disease affects the area around the hip, hip replacement may be an option. However, hip implant failure can lead to serious medical complications of its own, including:

  • Bone fractures
  • Dislocation and loosening of the implant
  • Tissue damage around the implant
  • Blood clots and sepsis

If you continue to experience pain, discomfort, and other problems after a hip implant to treat Paget’s disease, you should consult a doctor as soon as possible to track down the source of the problem. In some cases, a defective hip implant is the culprit. If so, you could be entitled to financial compensation from the implant manufacturer.
