US Drug Watchdog Now Offers to Assist Every DePuy Pinnacle Metal on Metal Hip Implant Recipient to Get Identified to the Best Attorneys for the Best Possible Compensation

Share Article

The US Drug Watchdog says, "With over 130,000 DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implants that were surgically installed on US citizens, combined with the fact that many types of metal-on-metal type hip implants are failing at a high rate, we are calling our DePuy Pinnacle hip implant initiative one of our most important medical device initiatives ever. The focus of this campaign is getting victims of a failed metal-on-metal DePuy Pinnacle hip implant identified to the best possible attorneys, with goal being compensation. Even if the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant device has not yet failed we want to get every recipient identified, out of fear the hip implant could prematurely fail in the future." According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "The so-called 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 instead of lasting 15 years or more, as artificial joints normally do." Symptoms of a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant failure include pain in the hip region, problems walking, swelling of the hip, or lack of flexibility in the area of the hip. The US Drug Watchdog says, "If you, or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, please call us immediately at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.com

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." For more information about the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant please call the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.com

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

The US Drug Watchdog is the premier medical device, and pharmaceutical watchdog in the United States. The group says, "We want to make certain all DePuy Pinnacle hip implant victims get to the actual trial law firms or attorneys that have the best record in achieving superior results for their clients. In the instance of the DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implant we could be talking about 100,000+ potential victims."
