US Drug Watchdog Now Calls Metal on Metal Hip Implant Failures A Train Wreck for up to 500,000 U.S. Citizens and Offers the Names of the Best Attorneys for Victims

July 25, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog says, “We are talking about half a million US citizens who are recipients of a metal on metal hip implant, we are talking about possible failure rates of 50% or more-this is a train wreck, and we are trying to do something about it. We want to hear from any metal-on metal hip implant recipient if their hip implant has already failed, or if the metal on metal hip implant recipient is concerned about a premature failure-as they should be. We will provide a metal on metal hip implant recipient with the names, and contacts of who we consider to be the best national caliber attorneys to help them.” 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.” Victims of the US Metal on Metal Hip Implant Disaster 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 says,”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 a backroom deal, nor will we stand by as hundreds of thousands of US citizens get left on the curb, now crippled, and holding the bag for a problem that should not be there’s. The US Drug Watchdog is now describing their All Metal on Metal Hip Implant Initiative the biggest medical device failure in US history, that involves up to 500,000 US citizens. Five hundred thousand US citizens is enough to fill to capacity famed Madison Square Gardens in New York City 25 times. 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.” For more information 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

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. 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. We want to make certain these metal-on-metal hip implant victims get to the best possible attorneys, to insure they get the best possible compensation for their ordeal.” http://USDrugWatchdog.com
