People should be informed about the possible effects of hip replacements. In addition to hip replacement implants failing and requiring corrective surgery, hip replacement is also associated with metal poisoning in the bloodstream and tissues damage surrounding the implant. Metal poisoning may elevate the risk of kidney and bladder cancers. DePuy Orthopaedics, a Johnson & Johnson subsidiary, is faced with a large number of lawsuits because of their defective hip implant.
