The Health Risks of Metal-on-Metal Hip Implants

Hip implants come in many designs and are made from several different kinds of materials. One form of implant that has recently come under scientific and public scrutiny is known as “metal-on-metal.” In this kind of implant, two metal elements may contact one another, potentially causing a variety of serious health problems. DePuy is the manufacturer of a popular metal-on-metal hip implant product that has now been recalled.

At Williams Hart, we are committed to protecting the rights of hip implant recipients. Contact a compassionate DePuy hip implant attorney at 800-761-3187 if you have suffered the harmful side effects of this metal-on-metal hip replacement product.

Common Problems Associated with Metal-on-Metal Hip Implants

Metal-on-metal implants are known to produce tiny shards of metal as their components grind against one another. These metal shards are absorbed into the body’s tissues and bloodstream, and can cause severe health problems. Some of the conditions associated with metallic fragments from hip implants include:

  • Metal allergy reactions
  • Metal poisoning
  • Sepsis
  • Soft-tissue damage

Although DePuy metal-on-metal hip implants have been recalled due to these and other health concerns, people who have already received this type of implant are still suffering the consequences. If you or a loved one has experienced adverse side effects from a DePuy hip implant, contact an attorney as soon as possible to discuss your legal options.
