US Drug Watchdog Now Calls Their Defective Metal on Metal Hip Implant Victims Initiative The Worst Medical Device Failure In US History Involving 500,000 US Citizens

Share Article

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. The US Drug Watchdog says," There are 500,000 US citizens stuck with what we think are defective metal on metal hip implants, and we are launching an aggressive initiative that will focus on information involving metal on metal hip implants, and we intend to make certain every recipient of a metal-on-metal hip implant has the best possible attorneys, or law firms-and we don't care if the metal on metal hip implant has failed yet or not." 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, is suffering the symptoms of a metal-on metal hip implant failure, or is concerned about a premature failure. Metal on metal hip implant recipients 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 expects there will be hundreds of thousands of metal-on-metal hip implant failure victims in the United States, and the group intends to create a seamless pathway where a US metal-on-metal hip implant recipient, or victim can get to the best possible personal injury attorneys; with the goal being compensation for what victims are going through, or what they might have to go through, should the hip implant prematurely fail in the near future. The US Drug Watchdog has dramatically redesigned their web site in order to be one of the best branded advocates for any victim of a failed metal-on metal hip implant device that was installed anytime in the US after 2002. According to the New York Times, "Some 500,000 patients have received an all-metal replacement hip, according to one estimate." The US Drug Watchdog wants to hear from any US hip implant recipient, who received a metal, or metal hip implant device after 2002, and whose metal-on-metal hip implant device has either already failed, or the recipient is experiencing symptoms of a hip implant failure that include swelling or pain in the region of the metal-on-metal hip implant and/or loss of mobility. For more information please contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via their web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

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, loss of mobility, or elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in their blood 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
