And yet, just a few years ago, before the arrival of robotic-assisted surgery, three-dimensional imaging and custom-fit implants, this was the challenge surgeons faced when performing knee and hip replacements.

Knee and hip replacements have been quite a topic especially of the controversies on its adverse effects. Biomet hip replacement, to be specific, has been alleged to fail and cause hip pain. Check to know more.

How come manufacturing defects are NOT being disclosed fully prior to insertion?

The Company knows there appliance has a defect and they still market it. Because income exceeds the expenses, even with the high cost of litigation, it is NOT there Hip or Joint., they couldn’t careless. Same with “Big Pharma” companies, it is NOT there body, so they pay out millions and millions but they sell much more.

Look at all the litigation tied just to Zoloft and Prozac!!

Sunlight can cure depression, just give up those Omega 6’s. The myth of a “deadly sun“, it is after all a healing SUN. I still have my perfect vision to prove it.

We’ve become a Pill happy Nation ignorantly, Quality food and exercise is much more beneficial!! I can prove all my assertions, I was close to death with immanent Kidney failure and the Florida Doctor said nothing, just push more drugs on me . Daniel Chervony MD???
is a total disgrace to the human race. Was developing Parkinson’s , and he said nothing. Why? Tied to big pharma. Extremely arrogant as well, a sign he had no clue.

Balance everything through proper nutrition annually, hormones, transmitters, receptors etc etc. It can be done with no ill side effects. A Natural Solution to everything.

I do believe that technology played a big role in the advancements in the field of medicine. Many people are now able to have better lives because of these new developments. Although we still need to know if there are side effects to these new implants, in several sites online like the depuypinnaclelawsuit. com, I have read accounts on failure of these hip implants. I think there is still room for improvement on these hip implants.

It sure is an achievement to discover new areas of treatments through the newly discovered technology.Now surgery can be considered as a final option for orthopedic treatment through the new technology as stem cell therapy has become the latest way of recovery on this condition.
Stem cell therapy is a treatment where the patient's bone marrow is extracted and the stem cells are separated in a centrifuge and re-inserted to the affected area. This treatmet was performed only on sports injuries earlier due to the high expenses as it required technology which was not available for less prices then. But now with the technological development normal people like us can also get benefitted from this effective treatment. Dr. Purita is known to be the best surgeon for this treatment.

Actually according to a film documentary on Stem Cells prepared by the Vatican, it is MY OWN stems cells that I want injected into my Hip. All medical appliances are unreliable, just look at all the litigation. Nothing today made is medically safe, Not drugs, Not appliances and Not even doctors, whom I totally distrust.

They are not giving it to the Public straight. If MD’s wanted you well, they’d offer you nutritional solutions not just prescribed meds that will open more holes then resolve. They want you to keep coming back for more.

As long as Income exceeds Expenses, they couldn’t careless about your safety or welfare. The Medical Industry each and every aspect is the Pits today.
"Do No Harm" is a travesty.

***In fact one fine day, maybe you’ll be able to bequeath your stem cells for future generations.

Why are Flu vaccines still being sold, when the shelf life has been over months and months ago?

Just more proof, It is all about $$$$ today, not your health.
