Indeed, there are some patients who do not need to have a hip replacement or may benefit from other alternatives. As failure of several metal hip implants starts to rise, many patients consider having other options besides going through the surgery. The cases against the pharmaceutical companies that manufacture these implants are even increasing. http://www.depuypinnaclelawsuit.com/do-i-have...

On matters regarding metal-on-metal hip replacements, recently, various lawsuits have been instituted by law firms around the globe against DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. on behalf of their clients who have become the victims of hip replacement surgeries. Legal experts report that numerous patients filed lawsuits against Johnson and Johnson. They were the victims of DePuy hip implants failures such as loosening, fractures, and displacements.

It is indeed important to evaluate the symptoms to know if there is a need for a hip revision or not. Some patients who have had an all-metal hip implants from DePuy had experienced their implants failing after a year or two of using it. I never actually believed the news until I browsed the web and read some articles at the depuypinnaclelawsuit. com which piqued my interest on the matter.

A lot of people would not want to undergo the hip replacement however the discomfort pushes them to do it. Nonetheless, considering exactly the same operation for the second, third or multiple times will not be quite nice to know for. For this reason lots of people are not satisfied of these devices to use in a particular operation which brings about filing lawsuits against the manufacturer.
To know more, there are articles that I read at http://gbrownhealthupdates.wordpress.com/2013... that may be of great help to people concerned.
