Hip replacement refers to the process in which a damaged hip joint is surgically replaced with an artificial implant. However, not all implants are safe, and some can cause serious complications. Metal-on-metal hip devices were originally thought to be a more durable alternative to ceramic or plastic models, but some studies have shown that they may deteriorate faster, expose patients to high levels of metals such as cobalt and chromium, and fail at a higher rate than older implants.
In fact, approximately one in 12 recipients of metal-on-metal devices may require corrective surgery within five years of implantation.
METAL-ON-METAL HIP REPLACEMENT SIDE EFFECTS
- Blood test results that show high levels of chromium and cobalt caused by metal debris
- Bone loss caused by device loosening
- Clicking, popping or grinding in the area of the hip implant
- Difficulty and pain when walking, standing or carrying weighted objects
- Dislocation or loosening of the implant
- Earlier than normal failure of the hip replacement
- Fractured hipbone
- Metallosis (metal flakes released into the bloodstream causing metal toxicity, pseudotumors, rash, necrosis or cardiac complications)
- Rash, indicating necrosis (cell death around the implant manifesting as a rash and eventually causing the loss of local soft bone and tissue)
- Pseudotumors (a mass of inflamed cells that resembles a tumor but is actually collected fluids)
- Severe pain
- Swelling of hip, thigh or groin area
- Tissue inflammation
- Cobalt poisoning
- Chronic pain
- Failure of the device
- Early revision surgery

Do I need a lawyer?
Expert witness fees are very expensive. They can often cost several thousand dollars per day. The expert witness fees must be paid for consulting, which includes reviewing records, examining a patient, and discussing findings with the lawyer, as well as for depositions and for trial. Lawyers who represent plaintiffs on a contingency basis (meaning the lawyer only gets paid if you win) usually hire the experts for the case. Without a lawyer to advance these costs, you may find yourself unable to afford the experts you need to prove your case.
