Hip Replacement Litigation
Contact Our Waco Product Liability Attorneys: (254) 938-6885
According to DrugWatch.com, in 2015, United States surgeons performed nearly 378,000 total hip replacements. According to Medscape, that number is expected to grow to more than 510,000 by 2020. Many manufacturers of the artificial, all-metal products claim these implants, which are made of ball-and-socket mechanisms, are more durable and provide a greater range of motion than artificial implants made in earlier years. Older hip replacement implants were made using combinations of plastic, ceramics, and metal. Regrettably, numerous patients who have undergone hip replacement surgery and obtained metal implants have suffered physical discomfort and other complications.

Symptoms of Defective Hip Replacement Implants
Many patients who obtained all-metal hip implants have suffered crippling tissue, muscle damage, and incapacitating pain following operations. For this reason, many of these patients have had to endure additional and costly revision operations to remove the defective metal implants and receive alternative devices.
Patients who have received all-metal implants should be alert that the following symptoms may indicate a defective or malfunctioning hip replacement device:
- Consistent and prolonged pain in the groin, leg, or hip
- Inflammation at or near the hip joint
- A limp or other change in the ability to walk
Recently, there have been many lawsuits filed against hip replacement prostheses sold under the names "ABG II" and "Rejuvenate®" for defects that caused patients to suffer from these symptoms and serious injuries.
