There are a lot of things that people may need to know about hip replacements. However, it is best if a patient connects to his doctor and discusses things over.

Because of the growing evidences of hazardous complications caused by metal-on-metal hip implant, FDA held a two-day meeting with its assembled 18-member panel of experts to reconsider the safety of the metal-on-metal hip replacement implants. Metal-on-metal implants were actually advertised to last longer and more efficient than other hip implant devices. However, reports of early wear have left the patients at higher level of metal exposure caused by cobalt, chromium and other metallic substances. Because of its higher rate of complications, there are also a large number of lawsuits filed against its manufacturers. For more input, visit http://www.depuyhipreplacementlawsuit.com

An increasing number patients affected have been filing complaints against the manufacturers of hip replacement systems. Patients were suffering from too much pain, experience popping, squeaking, bone fractures, corrosion, severe pain and etc. This is to prove that metal-on-metal hip replacement has a high failure rate.
