A hip replacement implant is supposed to help a patient live a full, active life – not lead to constant worry about potentially severe health problems that could be caused by the implant. You may want to consider filing a hip replacement lawsuit if you received a metal on metal hip implant and have experienced any of the following complications:
In many instances, patients have reported fractures in the area of their implant. Because the hip plays the vital role in bearing a large portion of the body’s weight, even a small bone fracture can result in severe pain and a loss of mobility.
When a hip replacement device suddenly becomes loose or dislocated, the results can be debilitating. Unfortunately, the most effective and common solution to this problem is a revision surgery to repair the dislocation.
Also known as metallosis, this dangerous condition occurs when small pieces of metal wear off of a metal hip replacement implant and are absorbed by the bloodstream. The most common cause of metallosis with metal-on-metal hip implants is the grinding together of different components of the device, which releases potentially toxic debris into the blood.
