Related health input, defective hip devices may cause health complications. Serious hip injuries, dislocations, or fractures can lead to avascular Necrosis, medical specialists say. It is a condition wherein blood supply to the ball (the ball-shaped piece of bone that fits into the socket of the hip) portion of the thighbone is cut off and the bone begins to break down. As a result, the surrounding cartilage also begins to collapse, producing acute pain and other symptoms. If you feel that there is something wrong with your hip device, immediately consult your doctor. For a more detailed explanation, visit

Some manufacturers like DePuy Inc and Johnson & Johnson are facing lawsuits because of implant failure. And so with Zimmers as well. Before getting a surgery like this, its better to go for alternatives first and do a research of your own. If you have consulted a specialist, make sure to get 2nd opinion. It would also help to gather information to people who have undergone hip surgeries. It's always best to seek medical assistance from those who are knowledgeable about your condition.
