US Drug Watchdog Now Urges All US Recipients of All Metal Hip Implants to Get a Blood Test For Cobalt-Chromium Levels and They Offer Specific Law Firms For Failure Victims

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We have a new big worry for all recipients of a metal on metal hip implant, and we are now urging them all to get a blood test for elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in their blood, because we believe this is the best way to determine a premature failure of one of these all metal hip devices." Victims of a metal on metal hip implant failure, or any metal on metal hip implant recipient can contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466 for more information.

The US Drug Watchdog's new goal is to make certain every US citizen, who is a recipient of a metal on metal hip implant gets a blood test, that is focused on cobalt, and chromium levels.

(PRWEB) January 24, 2013

The US Drug Watchdog says, “We are convinced the absolute best way for any recipient of a metal on metal hip implant device to see if their all metal hip implant has prematurely failed is to get a simple blood test, that is designed to measure cobalt, and chromium levels in their blood. If the cobalt, or chromium levels are elevated we believe this is a premature failure, and we are urging recipients to get a revision, or replacement surgery, because no one yet knows what elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium will do to a hip implant recipient over time, but we do not think it will be good. We are also urging all metal on metal hip implant failure victims to call us for the names of law firms that have an impressive track record in representing victims that are stuck with a defective medical product." The US Drug Watchdog's new goal is to make certain every US citizen, who is a recipient of a metal on metal hip implant gets a blood test, that is focused on cobalt, and chromium levels, because they do not want to see 100,000's of US citizens crippled, and left holding the bag for a financial, and major health problem that should not be their's. Metal on metal hip implant recipients are encouraged to call the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466 for more information. 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 elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in their blood, please have them call us at 866-714-6466. We want to make certain all of these metal-on-metal hip implant victims get to the best possible attorneys, to ensure they get the best possible compensation for their ordeal, or an ordeal that might be right around the corner.” http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
