Date:2/27/2013

(PRWEB) February 27, 2013

d’Oliveira & Associates has created a section on its website about alleged defective Smith & Nephew hip and knee replacement systems. These pages are designed to provide patients who have received Smith & Nephew hip or knee replacements up to date information on Smith & Nephew recalls, lawsuits, and settlements. Additionally, the law firm wants patients to know that d’Oliveira & Associates has years of experience helping victims of defective medical devices receive compensation.

Smith & Nephew Lawyer

The Smith & Nephew lawyer page gives an overview of the types of surgeries that use the company’s hip and knee replacement systems. The page also lists specific devices manufactured by the company that have been the source of any possible adverse side effects for patients. Finally, the page addresses the likelihood of risks posed by the R3 Acetabular System and other metal-on-metal medical devices.

Smith & Nephew Lawsuits

The Smith & Nephew lawsuits page reviews common allegations for a metal-on-metal device.  Specifically, many plaintiffs allege that Smith & Nephew hip and knee devices were defectively designed and were not reasonably tested. Additionally, the page details past defective device lawsuits against the company and those implanted with the R3 Acetabular System.

Smith & Nephew Manufacturer Page

The Smith & Nephew manufacturer page gives a brief history of the company and provides information on recent reports and recalls on the company. Specifically, Smith & Nephew has issued recalls for several of its hip and knee replacement systems over the last several years.*

Smith & Nephew Medical Studies Page

The Smith & Nephew medical studies page describes the process that caused metal-on-metal devices to become widely used in hip replacement surgeries despite the increased risks posed by such devices. Additionally, it details the history of the Food and Drug Administration’s role in regulating new products and its part in approving metal-on-metal implants. Finally, the page makes the argument of how ceramic and plastic hip and knee replacements have a lower failure rate than metal-on-metal devices.

Smith & Nephew Side Effects Page

The Smith & Nephew side effects page describes the range of potential side effects that may be caused by the medical devices and what possible health problems.

If you or a loved one has experienced pain, infection, fracture, or dislocation from a Smith & Nephew hip or knee replacement system, you may want to speak with a lawyer regarding a Smith & Nephew claim. A personal injury attorney familiar with new developments in the investigation of these metal-on-metal implants may be able to help you make important personal and legal decisions. d’Oliveira & Associates, P.C, is working with some of the leading defective medical device lawyers in the country who are handling these cases.
