This is a very good development because it goes to show that the hospital really thinks about its patients and not just of making money. This is more than I can say for some hip implant manufacturers, who rushed FDA in approving their products without conducting all tests to ensure that they are safe for consumers. According to this website, http://www.depuyhipreplacementlawsuit.com , more and more complaints have been received with regards to the DePuy hip replacement recall.

This is a good development which other hospitals should follow about putting up a hip fracture unit to cater to those patients who are planning to undergo hip implants. Visit http://www.depuypinnaclelawsuit.com/recall for more information.

This could prove to be a very revolutionary way to treat hip fractures or maybe other fractures for that matter. There is always room for improvement in better caring for patients with a fractured hip. Especially because drugs that are supposed to treat bone diseases may in fact be causing such fractures. Fosamax has had issues about this and has ended up facing lawsuits from complainants. Some cases could be found here http://www.fosamaxfemurfracturelawsuit.com .

This truly good news to thousands of old people suffering from hip pains. This will surely mean a lot to these people. Hopefully, these facilities will accept patients who have also been injured due to complciations resulting from the used of metal implants such as the DePuy ASR hip replacement systems. These peopel are under a lot of pain and any comfort and assistance will be very welcome. More on these patients affected by these implants are found in DePuy Settlement Information Center.

I read one piece that said there is no such thing as a 'weak' hip. The joint degenerates not just with age but because of weak muscles, ligaments and tendons involving the hips which in turn cause improper use which accelerates the wear and tear on a hip.
Rehab with any injury or weakness is just as important as the surgical or chemical treatment.
