Chicago Area Woman Suing Over Defective Hip Replacement
May 6, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: CBS Local
It was supposed to revolutionize hip replacements. Instead, an artificial hip produced by Stryker Medical Devices caused pain and hardship for scores of patients.
A lot of hip implant recipients from leading brands like Depuy and Biomet, have voiced their ire on the unfortunate circumstances they had from the defective hip replacement devices. Like them, injured and disheartened from the adverse effects of a hip implant, you may check http://www.rotlaw.com/biomet/ for infos on how to go though a Biomet lawsuit.
Patients have been kept in the dark of the true nature of these metal-on-metal hip implants despite news about its chain of complications which brought physical and emotional damage to its recipients. I just want to share this site http://strykerhipcw.tumblr.com/post/421871017... , they have helpful information about the complications that you may possibly get from a hip replacement surgery.
Metallosis is one of the most common side effects of hip implants especially the metal on metal. Not just Stryker, DePuy ASR has been receiving a lot of complaints because of the metal components that easily wears off. And because of this side effect, they even voluntarily recalled their products to avoid greater damage. The problem with the manufacturers is that they are a bit aware of these adverse side effects however they didn't disclose these possible dangers to the public.

Failed hip implants has been the causes of alarming complaints and lawsuits filed against hip implant manufacturers. Not only Stryker, DePuy ASR were also recalled because of these complaints. People who have problems resort to hip replacement surgery to relieve hip pains and would like to go back to doing activities that they usually do. And its frustrating that instead of relief, their hip problems worsen due to complications that occur after getting hip surgery. More at: http://www.hipreplacementlawsuitcenter.com/
This case is similar to so many others that have been settled by other US courts over defective hip replacement implants. Currently, there are thousands more waiting to be tried with no end yet in sight. The reputation of poor safety records and severe complications has affected hip implant sales that many products from different companies are being implicated and recalled for safety review or for posing an actual health threat to customers.
