“Hip replacement patients are being told to take a ‘wait and see’ approach. These cases are moving through the system quickly, and patients need to contact me or another attorney as soon as possible.” –Attorney Fred Pritzker
Metal-on-metal hip replacements are at risk for failing due to adverse reactions to metal debris (chromium and cobalt) caused by the metal parts rubbing together. In some cases, this can lead to necrosis (death) of tissue around the hip implant. Many patients are having hip revision surgery performed to get the failed metal-on-metal hip implants out and try save some tissue. In many of these cases, the patients do not recover well and have lasting problems.
