The complications of a hip replacement makes it harder for patients with RA to decide if they would be undergoing the surgery or not. The increasing incidences of metal toxicity found in these metal implants makes most people wary. Visit this site to know more of it.

Nice to see that the ambulance-chasing, bottome-feeding lawyers are out in full force in the comments section here. We joint replacement patients are getting pretty sick and tired of your kind preying on us.

This must suck for patients with RA. To think that they may eventually need to replace their hips someday, just to be plagued by a new set of health problems. It's like replacing one broken joint with another! I guess they may have no other choice but to choose their hip implants wisely, do research, and consult with doctors before even going into hip surgery. If it helps, here is a list of manufacturers with a track record of being sued (yes. It's a lawyer website. lol.It's about lawsuits, after all). It's probably best to avoid their products than risk developing complications.
