The US Drug Watchdog says, "Because we do not want to see one victim of a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipient left on the curb with the tab for an expensive hip replacement surgery, we are now urging all recipients of this specific type of all metal hip implant to call us about a simple blood test that has been designed to measure cobalt, and chromium levels in their blood stream. We also urgently need family members, or loved ones of any hip implant recipient, that was surgically installed between 2002, and 2011 to ask the family member, or friend, if it was a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, and if the answer is yes, please have the person call us at 866-714-6466." The US Drug Watchdog has two huge worries with the DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant, the first being many recipients are in pain, and they do not want to go through hip implant replacement surgery, so they do not complain. The second worry the group has is what do elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium mean for a person's health?
The US Drug Watchdog is the premier medical device, and pharmaceutical watchdog in the United States. The group says, “We want to make certain all DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients get a blood test to determine if their hip implant has failed. In the event the blood test indicates elevated levels of cobalt, and chromium we will get the recipient to national caliber law firms that have a superior record in representing their clients in these types of national lawsuits, involving possibly significant financial compensation."
