Less pain and faster recovery are indeed very tempting for most patient. However, the recent issues is not against the procedure butte devices that are implanted inside the body. Many patients claim that they were experiencing severe pain and swelling long after the surgery. After careful examination, it was that they were experiencing these discomforts not because of the surgery but it was connected to the hip implants. There are several issues tackled at http://www.depuypinnaclelawsuit.com regarding problems with these hip implants.

The anterior method has been gaining wide acceptance and more and more surgeons are using this technique. This is definitely good news to patients since this will mean faster recovery and less chances of complication. What should be of more concern would be the type of hip implant being used. Metal implants have been in the news lately due to the severe complications it may cause allegedly due to defective designs. Even with the anterior method of surgery, complications are still possible due the type of implants used. You may want to get information about these complciation by checking DePuy ASR hip lawsuit information center.
