based on the hundreds of metal on metal hip implant victims we talk to each month, not only are many crippled, but they and we are concerned about what elevated levels of metal- debris in their blood stream will mean for their future-where is the US FDA?

The US Drug Watchdog says, "There are over 130,000 DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal surgically installed on US citizens between 2005, and 2010, and we are very focused on getting every DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipient identified, if their hip implant device has failed, or is in the process of failing, or the recipient has a fear of failure in the future. Out of 130,000+ US citizens, who are recipients of the DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant, only about one thousand have been identified by the US federal court in Texas handling the litigation over this hip implant device, and we think the numbers should probably be in the tens of thousands, so we are initiating a very aggressive public awareness campaign, that includes access to national caliber personal injury attorneys, who thoroughly understand the issues with metal-on-metal hip implants." According to the New York Times, "Some 500,000 patients have received an all-metal replacement hip." The US Drug Watchdog says, "If you are a recipient, or a loved one is a recipient of a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, that has already failed, or showing symptoms of a failure, we want to get you identified, and we want to make certain you get to the best possible national caliber personal injury law firms, to insure you receive the best possible compensation."

The US Drug Watchdog says, "The part that has us worried the most is the December 27th 2011 New York Times article related to metal on metal hip indicated quote," The wear of metal parts against each other is generating debris that is damaging tissue and, in some cases, crippling patients. What has us worried is based on the hundreds of victims of metal on metal hip implants we talk to each month, not only are many crippled, but they, and we are very concerned about what elevated levels of metal debris in their blood stream will mean for their future. Once again we ask-where is the US FDA on this metal on metal hip implant disaster?" http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
