This just shows how safe hip replacement surgery is that even a 103 year old man with a fragile body has successfully gone through it. Although right now, hip replacement surgeries have issues with different hip medical devices which you can read here http://www.depuypinnaclelawsuit.com/

This is great news! However, hip replacement surgery issues still linger especially with the case of Johnson and Johnson's lawsuits. After information was out saying that the devices have defects in one out of eight clients, the ASR XL Acetabular System and the ASR Hip Resurfacing System were withdrawn. These devices were manufactured in 2003 by DePuy Orthopaedics Inc., a subsidiary company of Johnson & Johnson. There are about 93,000 recipients of these products worldwide, including 40,000 in US alone. Included in the list of the complications that may result from DePuy hip implants are: loosening of hip device, additional hip replacement surgery, detachment of hip device from the bone, unexplained hip pain, hip dislocation, metal toxicity (metallosis), pseudotumors, genetic damage (genotoxicty), bone fractures, bone loss, tissue damages and cancer due to the presence of chromium and cobalt in the blood.

In relation to this, please know that hip surgeries could be fatal to one’s health if defective hip devices are used. DePuy hip replacement device is example of a defective medical product. It extreme cases, these hip devices may completely fail which will result in a more severe health complication. Additional input here: http://www.hiprecalllaw.com/symptoms/ .
