Our goal is to identify at least 200,000 plus US recipients of metal on metal hip implants to the best possible attorneys, because we will not tolerate another backroom deal

The US Drug Watchdog 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. 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 or loss of mobility. 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. The wear of metal parts against each other is generating debris that is damaging tissue and, in some cases, crippling patients." 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. Victims 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
The US Drug Watchdog has a new concern about metal on metal hip implant failures related to elevated levels of cobalt, or other metals in the blood streams of recipients of a metal on metal hip implant between 2005, and 2010. The group says, "What are the side effects of having elevated levels of cobalt in a persons blood stream? Where is the US Food and Drug Administration when it comes to the US metal on metal hip implant disaster?"
The US Drug Watchdog says, "One of the biggest problems we have with respect to our failed medical device or recalled drug initiative work is the average US consumer never hears about a drug recall or failures involving medical devices like metal-on-metal hip implants. 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, such as swelling, pain in the region of the hip, loss of flexibility or loss of mobility, please have them call us 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
