Although some studies of hip replacements showed that there is no link to cancer, people may need to know that DePuy Orthopaedics, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, is faced with a number of lawsuit due to its defective metal hip replacement. Among of the reported complications are premature failures, metal particles in the blood resulting to metal poison, infection, blood clots and joint loosening.

I think it is still best to know all the possible outcomes before signing up for a hip replacement operation. I have seen several news about these hip implants failing on several sites online such as the depuypinnaclelawsuit. com and it is very unsettling.

This update is in contrast to the other studies made. Anyhow, metal-on-metal hip implants have been constantly reported to be causing grave health injuries. As a matter of fact, the manufacturer Stryker is now facing hundreds of lawsuits over its artificial hip implants. Read more here: http://strykerhipreplacementlawsuit.blogspot....
