This is great news as time will come that there will be no more complications from hip replacement operations. Imagine having to deal with the complications such as inflammation, pain, and metallosis, it will be hard to move around. Check out this helpful site I found, they have thorough information about hip replacement complications.

Yes Amber this is indeed a great news. I have read somewhere in depuypinnaclelawsuit. com that there are many people who have experienced hip implant failure. The start of this research on hip replacement failure may give more data on how to prevent it.

Definitely great news!

Hope springs eternal.

I just worry this might come up short and people don't really get anything from the research.

I believe this a great development. Anything that makes medical devices better is always welcome. If this new material is viable, then certainly a lot of patients will benefit. This is especially so after the debacle of metal-on-metal implants such as the DePuy ASR hip systems which has left thousands of people injured. This has led to multiple legal actions with one in Califronia waiting for decision. To learn more about this, you may visit .
