Before patients go for an all-metal hip replacement, I recommend that they do some research first. I have started my reading and came into this site http://www.hiprecalllaw.com . It tackles hip replacement thoroughly.

If a person is experiencing hip pains and is contemplating of having a hip implant. It is best that you do a lot of research about its pros and cons before deciding of getting one such as Depuy Pinnacle hip replacement. Visit http://www.depuypinnaclelawsuit.com/recall for more information.

There truly is a medical crisis going on with hip replacements, not on the procedure itself which is supposed to be successful, but more on the hip implant being used which may be faulty and defective by default. To read more, go to: http://www.strykerhiprecall.us/why-are-metal-...

A newer approach to hip replacement may regain the lost enthusiasm of most people with hip implants. Due to the rise in issues with hip devices, many people have avoided having them inside their body. There are even several individuals who have visited http://www.depuyhipreplacementlawsuit.com

Hey Linda,
I'd just contact a lawyer if I was you. Any good ones won't charge you until you win your case. The hip replacement failure rate is quite high for metal on metal hip replacements, if that's what you had. Here, I just saw this hip implant failure post today...the first part is about Minnesota, but it's relevant for anywhere. I hope this helps you figure out if your implant is failing. http://www.meshbesher.com/blog/2012/11/sympto...
