Metal Hip Implants Can Cause Dangerous Health Effects

Stryker's metal-on-metal hip implants cause friction between the metal components, which can result in the release of metal particles into surrounding tissue and blood stream. The metal particles consist of cobalt and chromium ions. Metal particles in the blood stream can result in metal toxicity causing a wide range of health problems, as documented by the FDA, such as necrosis (damage or death of tissue), osteolysis (bone destruction or bone deterioration), hip fractures, hip dislocation, difficulty standing or walking, swelling, inflammation, and cardiac abnormalities. Other side effects associated with Stryker metal-on-metal hip implant devices include failure of the hip implant, hip pain, additional surgery (revision surgeries), difficulty standing or walking, loosening of the hip implant, periprosthetic fluid collections, soft-tissue masses, bone loss, and stripping of bone membrane.

If you or a loved one have experienced a hip implant failure or other health problems associated with a metal-on-metal hip implant, please contact Ryan Keane at The Simon Law Firm, P.C.
