Metal on metal hip recalls cause earlier replacements

Posted on December 30th, 2011 No Comments

Metal on metal hips have commonly been selected by individuals who lead a young and active lifestyle. These hips were supposed to withstand more activity and lead to a longer life before replacement surgery needed to occur. Now, DePuy Orthopedics are recalling these metal on metal hips.

This recall is centered around the fact that the metal can wear down and release chromium and cobalt into the person’s bloodstream. These hip replacements can cause severe pain in the individual including numbness of the area.

Due to the defection of the replacements, patients will be forced to undergo another hip replacement surgery much earlier than expected. These hips were supposed to stave off another surgery for a few decades and now certain individuals are having to go under the knife again after just a few years.

If you received a DePuy hip replacement and subsequently experienced problems with it, contact the DePuy lawsuit lawyers of Williams Kherkher by callling 800-761-3187 today.
