ARKANSAS DEFECTIVE HIP IMPLANT LAWYERS
Stryker, Depuy & Other Metal Hip Lawsuits
Over 450,000 hip replacement surgeries are performed annually. A hip or knee replacement surgery should last up to 20 years or more. However, serious complications do occur, and it is estimated that 40% of the knee and hip replacement surgeries performed result in medical complications.
One big problem has been numerous recalls on metal hip implants and metal knee implants. There are a variety of implants that surgeons can use, and unfortunately many have been recalled due to failure.

Manufacturers Of Defective Metal Hip & Knee Implant Recalls
The FDA became aware of the risks associated with metal-on-metal hip implants in 2011. They ordered all manufacturers to conduct independent studies into how often these devices were failing.
The studies resulted in multiple recalls from the five top manufacturers. Today, thousands of patients are still suffering from severe adverse effects and having to undergo revision surgery.
The following manufacturers have had their products recalled:
- Smith & Nephew
- Wright Conserve Cup
- Zimmer Durom Cup
Patients have experienced the following symptoms after hip replacement surgery:
- Reduced range of motion and loss of mobility
- Inflammation and severe pain at the location of the implant
- Joint instability and a slipping feeling in the hip joint
- Had to undergo a revision surgery
- Diagnosed with metal poisoning
- Renal function impairment
Millions of dollars have already been paid out to plaintiffs for compensation for serious injuries and revision surgeries.
