New York Personal Injury Attorney David Perecman Comments On Dangers Of ‘Metal On Metal' Hip Implants
Date:3/17/2010

Orthopedic surgeons are wary of metal on metal hip replacement surgery due to reports of severe tissue and bone damage

(PRWEB) March 17, 2010 -- According to a recent story in the New York Times, some of the nation's top orthopedic surgeons have reduced or even eliminated the use of metal on metal artificial hips. New York personal injury attorney David Perecman comments about recent reports that metal on metal hip implants could be causing severe tissue and bone damage and the Supreme Court has closed of access to the courts for victims.

"This is extremely alarming due to the fact that many people have to go under the knife again within two years of having metal on metal hip implants," said New York personal injury attorney David Perecman. "When you have doctors at the finest hospitals in the United States recommending patients not to undergo this hip implant surgery, and the elevated risks of metal on metal implants, more studies need to be done before allowing this procedure to move forward."

The New York Times article states how Zimmer Holdings, one of the largest producers of the metal on metal joints, published a report that "suggests that ion release levels from Zimmer's metal-on-metal hip systems are commensurate with other metal-on-metal systems in the industry, and are not associated with significant risk to patients."

Most distressing, however, is that the Supreme Court of the United States, having been filled with republican and conservative appointees, most recently by President Bush, recently ruled that the victims will have no access to the courts because the dysfunctional FDA approved the devices.
