Share Article

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We are strongly urging all US metal on metal hip implant recipients to start getting annual blood testing aimed at identifying cobalt, or chromium levels, as well. If the cobalt, or chromium levels are elevated the US metal on metal hip implant recipient should call the best possible orthopedic surgeon for a more thorough examination. On June 25th the Associated Press indicated, "European health agencies are about to require all of their citizens, who have a metal on metal hip implant to get annual blood testing, aimed at seeing if the all metal hip implant recipient has elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in their blood stream." The US Drug Watchdog is also urging any recipient of a metal on metal hip to call them for the names of the best plaintiffs law firms, because they fear European health studies pointing to a 50% failure rate among metal on metal hip implants is accurate. Any recipient of a metal on metal hip implant that was surgically installed between 2002, and 2012 are encouraged to contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466 for more information, or they can contact the group via their web site. http://USDrugWatchdog.com

If the blood work reveals elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in the metal on metal hip implant recipient's blood the group wants the hip implant recipient to call them immediately, so they can direct the implant victim to the best possible law firms

The US Drug Watchdog is now saying, "The scope of the US metal on metal hip implant disaster began to be revealed in 2010 when DePuy recalled its ASR XL Acetabular System. Of this specific recalled metal on metal hip implant there are nearly 40,000 US recipients alone." According to the New York Times the actual number of US citizens with a metal on metal hip implant is about 500,000. Because the Europeans are on the verge of requiring annual blood testing for all metal on metal hip implant recipients, the US Drug Watchdog has concluded the best way for a US recipient of a all metal hip implant to determine if their metal on metal hip implant device has failed-is to have a simple blood test to see if their blood contains elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium. If the blood work reveals elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in the all metal hip implant recipient's blood the group wants the hip implant recipient to call them immediately, so they can direct the metal on metal hip implant victim to the best possible law firms. US metal on metal hip implant recipients are encouraged to call the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466 for more information, or they can contact the group via their web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.com

The US Drug Watchdog is trying to be the leader with respect to consumer information related to what they refer to as the US Metal on Metal Hip Implant Disaster. If a US citizen has one of these types of metal on metal hip implants the US Drug Watchdog is encouraging the recipient to call the group out of fear there will be a premature failure. For more information please call the group at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
