The failures of the other pharmaceutical hip products are not the failure of the many. It is good to know that there are still hip replacement devices being manufactured and the companies are trying their best to improve their products. Check out http://www.hiprecalllaw.com

This news is very good however Ive read issues about this medical device here http://www.depuypinnaclelawsuit.com/ . Anyone has to say about this?

I think ceramics are a great substitute for metal implants since this excludes the possibility of metallosis. This device might have been an afterthought after that whole DePuy incident surfaced and caused so much trouble. But again, every medical option should be taken with a grain of salt.

Any innovation in hip replacement is always welcome. The ceramic to metal implant may be beneficial to a lot of patients.This is especially so with the recent controversy involving the all-metal implants which have caused injuries to thousands of people.Learn more about this by checking sites such as DePuy Settlement Information Center.

Let's just hope that this is not the same as their Pinnacle Hip System that will lead to more pain instead of relief and comfort. I was looking information on what type of hip implant would be best, then I found http://pinnaclelawsuit.typepad.com which made me realize that I should avoid all-metal hip implants.

Metal-on-metal hip implants have been found to cause several problems but this new hip replacement may be more promising as it does not have an all-metal component. I have read several articles online that gave information on why these implants fail. I was also browsing the web when I came across http://www.davincilawsuit.us/ , I'm not sure if it will answer all of your questions though.
