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.
