These metal-on-metal hip implant devices truly have a damaging effect to its recipients. ItÂ’s sad that people who are hoping to get better are experiencing the opposite. I just want to share this site http://strykerhipreplacementrecall.blogspot.c... , they have helpful information about the complications that you may possibly get from a hip replacement surgery.

I just recently found some stories of patients who have had a first-hand experience of the complications from these devices. It was from a site called the DePuy Hip Recall Information Center. And it's a big relief to know that J&J finally decided to pull out these controversial hip implants. While they could be beneficial, they may also bring about health risks that could be as equally damaging, if not more, as the problem that the device was supposed to correct. This move by J&J may just spare a lot of people the potential suffering that others may have already gone through.

It is a good thing that DePuy has been more forward in their "Adept" brand than the ASR metal implants sold in the US. Recalling this product may eventually save thousands of people from injury as a result of complications which may be very fatal. You may visit DePuy ASR hip lawsuit information center for more information and updates on this matter.

These metal-on-metal implants are being recalled one after the other which may mean that something is seriously wrong with this type of material. This is causing so much pain and suffering to thousands of people like those affected by the DePuy ASR hip systems. It might be a good idea to demand a thorough clinical test before these type of implants are approved. For more on the ASR controversy, you may refer to DePuy Settlement Information Center.
