Our firm is here to hold them accountable to that standard.
Metal-on-Metal Hip Implants
Metal-on-metal (MoM) hips were once touted to offer many benefits, including durability, stability, and longevity. However, within a few years of their peak use, many orthopedic surgeons have abandoned them altogether. There have been several hip recalls, namely the DePuy ASR, Stryker Rejuvenate, Stryker ABG II, and most recently the Stryker V40 femoral head. Metal-on-metal hips, such as the DePuy Pinnacle have been phased off the market but not necessarily recalled. Other devices that can be used in a metal-on-metal implant, include the Stryker Accolade femoral stem, Biomet M2a Smith and Nephew Hips, Zimmer Continuum Hips, and Zimmer Durom Cup.
Hip and Knee Replacement Infections
Hip replacement surgery comes with some inherent risks no matter what type of hip replacement is chosen. Infection is one of those major concerns. Aside from hip recall claims, GoldenbergLaw also reviews infection claims where a surgical warming blanket known as the Bair Hugger was used during surgery.
