Metal on metal hip replacements have been recommended for and installed in many people experiencing pain and trouble moving due to arthritic conditions in the hip joint. Unfortunately metal on metal hip implants are known to fail at an excessively high rate which has led to metal on metal hip replacement lawsuits being filed for damages. The high failure rate leads to excruciating pain, loss of movement and even metal poisoning, known as metallosis, in consumers unlucky enough to have been given a metal on metal hip.
Many people suffering with a metal on metal hip implant were forced to have painful and expensive revision surgeries to replace the defective product they were given.
