The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Mary Bond and people who suffer from Hip Replacements adverse events And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
According to court documents, on April 2nd, 2012, a Madison County woman, Mary Bond, filed a lawsuit in Madison County Circuit Court (case no. 12-L-410) alleging that her Wright Profemur Hip Replacement popped out of its socket and caused further damage to her leg. Bond was implanted with a Wright Profemur Total Hip System in March 2007. After receiving the Wright Hip Implant plaintiff says she began to have pain and in July 2011 Bond's artificial hip joint allegedly came out of the socket. Consequently, she was fitted with an abduction brace that Bond must wear 24 hours a day. The Wright Medical Profemur Total Hip System is a line of hip replacement implants designed and manufactured by Wright Medical Technology.
The 2009 annual report from an implant registry run by the Australian Orthopaedic Association revealed that the Wright Profemur Z hip implant was identified as having a higher than expected revision rate, with 11.2% of the patients who have had this implant to require additional surgery within three years of the initial surgery.
