The US Drug Watchdog says, "According to the BBC, European health agencies are about to require all of their citizens, who have a metal on metal hip implant to get annual blood testing, aimed at seeing if the all metal hip implant recipient has elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in their blood stream. We are strongly urging all US metal on metal hip implant recipients to start getting blood testing aimed at identifying cobalt, or chromium levels, as well. If the cobalt, or chromium levels are elevated the US metal on metal hip implant recipient should call the best possible orthopedic surgeon for a more thorough examination, and call us at 866-714-6466." According to the New York Times there are 500,000 US recipients of a metal on metal hip implant. The US Drug Watchdog wants to make certain every US victim of a metal on metal hip implant failure, or a recipient concerned about a premature failure has the best possible national caliber attorneys, because compensation is going to be vital for any US recipient of a metal of metal hip implant-in the event their all metal hip implant has already failed, or fails down the road." Any recipient of a metal on metal hip implant that was surgically installed between 2002, and 2012 are encouraged to contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466 for more information. http://USDrugWatchdog.com

The US Drug Watchdog is now saying, "With European health agencies on the verge of requiring annual blood testing for all metal on metal hip implant recipients-we have concluded the best way for a US recipient of a metal on metal hip implant to see if their hip implant device has failed-is to have a simple blood test to reveal if their blood contains elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium.

The US Drug Watchdog says, “One of the biggest problems we have with respect to our failed medical device or recalled drug initiative work is the average US consumer never hears about a drug recall or failures involving medical devices like metal-on-metal hip implants. If you have a friend, or loved one who is a recipient of a metal-on metal hip implant please share this press release with them. We want to make certain these metal-on-metal hip implant victims get to the best possible attorneys, to insure they get the best possible compensation for their ordeal.” http://USDrugWatchdog.com
