SERIOUS COMPLICATIONS from Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacements can include:
Need for Revision Surgery
Elevated levels of cobalt and/or chromium in the blood
Diagnosis of metallosis
Loosening of the device
It has been reported that metal-on-metal hip replacements have the highest failure rate and fail at a rate of over 10%; meaning that many patients will need to endure costly and painful revision surgery.
Johnson & Johnson, Biomet, and Stryker Orthopedics have all agreed to pay billions to settle thousands of outstanding claims against them.
Juries have also awarded plaintiffs hundreds of millions of dollars in some recent trials.
