Not only is a defective hip implant directly at odds with a patient’s recovery, but it can also result in some serious, long-term side effects like those listed above. Many patients implanted with a faulty hip replacement must ultimately undergo revision surgery to remove and replace the initial implant and whether their implant has been recalled by the manufacturer.
Reidsville, N.C., patients who were implanted with a DePuy ASR, Stryker ABG II or Wright Medical PROFEMUR metal-on-metal hip implant should consider visiting their orthopedic surgeon or other trusted physician to discuss complications, pain or symptoms resulting from the implant.
Reidsville, N.C., residents seeking medical assistance related to hip replacement complications or pain should contact the surgeon who conducted the initial surgery or other orthopedic surgery. Below are several orthopedic practices in and around Reidsville, N.C.
When speaking with your surgeon or physician, determine your best course of action, whether it’s revision surgery, testing, etc. Many hip replacement models have been recently recalled by their manufacturers, so you may be entitled to full or partial compensation, both for the cost of any medical bills incurred by the defective hip replacement as well as the pain experienced and any wages lost as a result of the process.
