I think it is important for everyone to know that DePuy Orthopaedics, a division of Johnson & Johnson is currently facing a large number of lawsuits filed in behalf of injured hip replacement patients. Surgeons are alarmed that hip replacement devices are likely to fail over the next two or three years of use. For more information, you may refer at http://www.depuypinnaclelawsuit.com/ .

There are many women who have experienced pain because of the hip implants that failed. I think it was at the http://pinnaclelawsuit.typepad.com that I have seen the article. There is even a study that points to this finding.

Researchers have found the method, called hip resurfacing, leads to up one in nine operations in women failing within seven years, frequently because the joint becomes too painful. Failure rates are up to six times higher than with more traditional techniques. To know more, refer at http://www.strykerhipreplacementrecall.net/la...

Research shows that women are prone to hip failures compared to men. For over 30,000 hip implant patients, 30% of women are more likely to develop hip replacement complications that may result to hip replacement failure. This is to prove that metal on metal hip replacement implants has high-failure rate. I had also read more information from www.rotlaw.com/hip-replacement-lawsuits
