For some reason we are seeing case after case where the orthopedic surgeon is dismissing the idea of a blood test, or that anything is wrong with the metal on metal hip implant-even if the recipient is in agony

The US Drug Watchdog is urging all recipients of a metal on metal hip implant made by DePuy, Stryker, Biomet, Zimmer, or Wright Medical Technology to get a blood test aimed at identifying elevated cobalt, or chromium levels. If the blood test indicates elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium the group is urging the recipient to call them for the names of national caliber law firms that specialize in that specific type of metal on metal hip implant. With 500,000 US recipients of a metal on metal hip implant the US Drug Watchdog fears there could be hundreds of thousands of victims related to a premature failure of a all metal hip implant. The group does not want any recipient of a metal on metal hip implant left holding the bag for a problem that should not be theirs. For more information any US citizen who is a recipient of a metal on metal hip implant is encouraged to call the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.com

Important note from the US Drug Watchdog: "We are not recommending US recipients of a all metal hip go back to the orthopedic surgeon that installed the metal on metal hip implant for a blood test, focused on measuring cobalt, or chromium levels. For some reason we are seeing case after case where the orthopedic surgeon is dismissing the idea of a blood test, or that anything is wrong with the metal on metal hip implant-even if the recipient is in agony. We are recommending US recipients of a metal on metal hip implant go to their primary care physician for their cobalt, or chromium blood test." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

If you have a friend, or loved one who is a recipient of a metal-on metal hip implant that has already failed or is showing symptoms of a failure, or are concerned about a premature failure please call us anytime at 866-714-6466. 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
