The US Drug Watchdog is calling the US metal on metal hip implant disaster the biggest medical device failure in US history, and the group is convinced there are hundreds of thousands of US citizens who are recipients of a metal-on-metal hip implant that has failed, or will fail prematurely. According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "Metal-on-metal hips, in which a device's ball and joint are made of metal, are failing at high rates within a few years." The US Drug Watchdog wants to hear from any metal-on metal hip implant recipient if their hip implant has already failed, or if the hip implant recipient is suffering the symptoms of a metal-on metal hip implant failure, and the group will provide a metal on metal hip implant recipient with the names, and contacts of who they consider to be the best national caliber attorneys to help them. Recipients of a metal on metal hip implant are encouraged to contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466, or they can contact the group via the web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.com

According to the US Drug Watchdog, "Symptoms of a metal-on-metal hip implant failure include pain in the area of the hip implant, loss of flexibility, swelling in the area of the metal-on metal hip implant, loss of mobility, and elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in the blood stream of the recipient. We think a blood test for cobalt, and or chromium are the best ways for any metal on metal hip implant recipient, has a failed hip implant device." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
