We rarely talk to senior citizens, and the few we do talk to are terrified of a metal on metal hip implant replacement surgery, also known as a revision surgery

(PRWEB) January 11, 2013

The US Drug Watchdog says, "According to the New York Times there are 500,000 US citizens, who are a recipients of a metal on metal hip implant. The typical metal on metal hip implant recipient we talk to about a failure is a man, or a woman in their 50's. We rarely talk to senior citizens, and the few we do talk to are terrified of a metal on metal hip implant replacement surgery, also known as a revision surgery. Based on our two year effort focused on metal on metal hip implant failures we are convinced there are thousands, to even tens of thousands of US senior citizens living with a failed metal on metal hip implant, and we really need family members to help us help them. For starters we want anyone in the US who has a metal on metal hip implant to get a blood test for elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium. If the levels are elevated we want the recipient, or their family members to call us, and we will suggest law firms that might be able to help."

The US Drug Watchdog is now calling their defective, or failed metal-on-metal hip implant compensation, and representation initiative their largest medical device victims campaign ever. The goals of this campaign is compensation for what a victim of a metal-on-metal hip implant failure will have to go through, and making certain every victim of a metal-on-metal hip implant has the best possible attorneys, or law firms-so no metal hip implant victim gets left on the curb with an ordeal that should not be their problem-especially senior citizens. All US metal on metal hip implant recipients are encouraged to call the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-646. http://USDrugWatchdog.com
