US Drug Watchdog Now Urges All Metal on Metal Hip Implant Failure Victims To Get A New Opinion From Another Orthopedic Surgeon Before They Get Stuck With a New Problem
Date:2/1/2013

(PRWEB) February 01, 2013

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We are increasingly getting phone calls, or e-mails from frantic victims of a metal on metal hip implant failure, who have either been completely ignored by the orthopedic surgeon that did the original metal on metal hip implant, or their orthopedic surgeon is offering to do little more than a rebuild of their existing failed metal on metal hip implant, using new parts from the same old manufacturer. Because of all of this nonsense we are now urging victims of a failed metal on metal hip implant to seek a second, or third opinion from an orthopedic surgeon that is not in anyway associated with the original surgeon. We are not surgeons, and we are not lawyers, so we are not offering this as a medical, or legal opinion, but we think a victim of a metal on metal on metal hip implant failure needs to understand in every instance we know of the orthopedic surgeon only works with one device company." So why is all of this a big deal? According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "The so-called metal-on-metal hips, in which a device’s ball and joint are made of metal, are failing at high rates within a few years.The wear of metal parts against each other is generating debris that is damaging tissue and, in some cases, crippling patients", and on January 17th 2013 the US FDA announced, "Metal on metal hip implant failures may result in tissue damage for the recipient." If a metal on metal hip implant recipient has any questions about the problematic metal on metal hip implants they can always call the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466 for more information. http://USDrugwatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog is now advising all US Citizens, who have received a metal on metal hip implant anytime after 2001 to start getting annual blood tests focused on measuring cobalt, or chromium levels a the hip implant recipients blood. If the cobalt, or chromium levels are elevated the US Drug Watchdog believes this is a extremely important symptom the metal on metal hip implant has failed. http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog is the premier medical device, and pharmaceutical watchdog in the United States. The group says, “We want to make certain all metal on metal hip implant failure victims get to the actual law firms or attorneys that have the best record in achieving superior results for their clients. In the instance of a metal-on-metal hip implant failure we could be talking about tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills, loss of work, now crippled, etc.” For more information about metal on metal hip implant failures please contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.com
