Have You Suffered Due to a Failed Metal-on-Metal Hip Implant? Our Medical Device Attorneys Are Here to Help

Metal-on-metal hip replacements parts were introduced to replace traditional ceramic or plastic hip replacement parts. The metal parts were supposed to be more durable and long-lasting. Unfortunately, patients have experienced high failure rates and painful problems after undergoing metal-on-metal hip replacement.

The problem with metal-on-metal hip replacements is that when the implant’s ball and socket rub against each other, it causes debris—usually chromium or cobalt—to be released into the patient’s body. The debris leads to metal poisoning, inflammation, groin pain, dead tissue and bone loss. Due to these issues, implants that were promised to last 20+ years are resulting in failure at 5 years or less. Many patients have had to undergo revision surgery to remove and replace the defective hip implant. The revision surgeries are often more invasive than the initial surgery and have a longer recovery time.

Metallosis

When the metal implant parts of a hip replacement abrade of rub against each other, metal debris can enter the body. The deposit and buildup of metal debris into the soft tissue of the body is called metallosis and is a serious medical condition. Thought Metallosis is a rare diagnosis, it is potentially fatal.
