Just as dangerous as hip resurfacing, people should be informed about the possible effects of hip replacement. In addition to hip replacement implants failing and requiring corrective surgery, hip replacement is also associated with metal poisoning in the bloodstream and tissue 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 due to their defective hip implant and failure to warn the public about its potential harm.
