US Drug Watchdog Now Offers Victims of All Metal Hip Implant Failure the Names of the Best Attorneys & Calls Metal Hip Implants a Train Wreck with Up to 500,000 Victims
The US Drug Watchdog is calling the US metal on metal hip implant disaster a train wreck, and they are convinced there are hundreds of thousands of US citizens who are recipients of a metal-on-metal hip implant that has failed, or will fail prematurely. Symptoms of a metal-on-metal hip implant failure include pain in the area of the hip implant, loss of flexibility, swelling in the area of the metal-on metal hip implant, loss of mobility, and elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in the blood stream of the recipient. According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "The so-called metal-on-metal hips, in which a device's ball and joint are made of metal, are failing at high rates within a few years instead of lasting 15 years or more, as artificial joints normally do." The US Drug Watchdog wants to hear from any metal-on metal hip implant recipient if their hip implant has already failed, or if the hip implant recipient is suffering the symptoms of a metal-on metal hip implant failure, and the group will provide a metal on metal hip implant recipient with the names, and contacts of who they consider to be the best national caliber attorneys to help them. Victims are encouraged to contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466, or they can contact the group via the web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.com.

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, because up to 500,000 US citizens are involved. Five hundred thousand people is enough to fill famed Yankee Stadium ten times over. 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. The US Drug Watchdog says, “As of this moment under 5000 US citizens, who have a failed metal on metal hip implant have been identified by federal courts in Ohio, and or Texas handling the DePuy litigation. The Europeans are suggesting failure rates of metal on metal of 50%, and they may soon be requiring blood testing to determine if a metal on metal hip implant has failed. Our goal is to identify at least 250,000 plus US recipients of metal on metal hip implants to the best possible attorneys, because we will not tolerate another backroom deal, nor will we stand by as hundreds of thousands of US citizens get left on the curb holding the bag for a problem that should not be there’s.” US metal on metal hip implant recipients are encouraged to call the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466, or they can contact the group via their web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.com.
The US Drug Watchdog is restating their concern about metal on metal hip implant failures, and elevated levels of cobalt, or other metals in the blood streams of recipients of a metal on metal hip implant between 2002, and 2010. The group says, “Where is the US Food and Drug Administration when it comes to the US metal on metal hip implant disaster? What are the side effects of having elevated levels of cobalt in a persons blood stream?” 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 swelling, pain in the region of the hip, loss of flexibility or loss of mobility, please have them call us at 866-714-6466 immediately.
