Attorney Dan Burke of Parker Waichman explains the risks associated with hip replacement devices that contain metal parts.
The implants, commonly known as "metal on metal" hip implants are causing patients a host of problems. With a hip replacement device, a ball and cup are placed inside the hip. The ball then rotates inside the cup, giving a natural movement much like your hip before being replaced. The metal parts can be the ball and cup. As they rub together, small metal particles can be shaved off and enter your blood stream. Obviously, metal is not good for the body. Patients have experienced high levels of cobalt and chromium resulting in metal poisoning. Patients may also suffer difficulty walking, nerve pain, and may even have to have another hip replacement device installed. Watch this video now to learn more.
