People More At-Risk for Developing Metallosis

Metallosis is a serious and extremely painful health issue often associated with surgical implants that is caused by a buildup of metal and its debris in the body’s soft tissues. The effects of metallosis can not only be painful and dangerous, but also costly, as it can cause loosening of an implant and the need for a new implant. While any person has a chance, no matter how small, of developing metallosis, there are certain groups of people who are much more at-risk for developing this condition.

Unfortunately, many people who have received certain DePuy hip implants have reported numerous debilitating health problems, including metallosis, resulting from defective implants, and the DePuy lawyers at Williams Kherkher want to help those injured and suffering as a result of these defective implants. Call us at 800-761-3187 to find out how we may be able to help you pursue compensation for your undo suffering.

Groups at Risk

Because of the way the body distributes weight and puts tension on an implant, the following groups of people stand more of a chance of developing metallosis:

  • Patients who have metal-on-metal joint implants
  • Women of extremely small body size and stature
  • Women who are obese

Whether or not you belong to the above groups, if you are suffering from metallosis due to a defective hip implant, you need a DePuy lawyer on your side that is knowledgeable about these defects and ready to help you fight for the compensation you may be due.
