Hip Replacement Implant Lawsuits

Hip Replacement Implant products that use metal heads, metal cups, or metal liners are used to replace damaged hip joints in patients suffering from arthritis or other hip joint injuries. However, recent studies have shown that thousands of hip replacement implants have been linked to infections and serious side effects as:

  • Fractures;
  • Muscle and Tissue Damage;
  • Disassociation;
  • Bone Loss.

What are Hip Replacement Implants?

Hip Replacement Implants are artificial joints that are surgically implanted in the body to replace damaged or painful joints.

What is Happening with Hip Replacement Implants?

In metal-on-metal hip implants, the metal ball and the metal cup slide against each other during walking or running. Metal can also be released from other parts of the implant where two implant components connect. Metal release will cause some tiny metal particles to wear off of the device around the implant, which may cause damage to bone and/or soft tissue surrounding the implant and joint. This is sometimes referred to as an “adverse local tissue reaction (ALTR)” or an “adverse reaction to metal debris (ARMD).”
