US Drug Watchdog Now Offers Easy Steps for All DePuy ASR and Pinnacle Hip Implant Recipients to get a Blood Test for Cobalt and Chromium Levels – and get a Result Review
The US Drug Watchdog says, “We are now urging all recipients of a DePuy ASR, or a DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant to get a blood test for elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium, because we believe elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium are the best way to see if there has been a all metal hip implant failure, and we now are offering a review of the blood test to see if the colbalt, or chromium levels are elevated.” For more information please call the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.com

The US Drug Watchdog is now offering all recipients of a DePuy Pinnacle, or now recalled DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implant not only a review of their blood test related to cobalt, and chromium levels in their blood, the group is now also urging recipients to call them so they know exactly what specific type of blood test to get. The US Drug Watchdog says, “We have heard from hundreds of metal on metal hip implant recipients who had their complaints dismissed by their orthopedic surgeon, or their doctor blew off blood tests indicating elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in the blood, so we are trying to level the playing field for all US recipients of a metal on metal hip implant with a standard cobalt, and chromium blood test that is available nationwide, that also offers that revolutionary feature – we will get a third party review of the results, so there is no question about if the cobalt, or chromium levels are elevated, or if they are not. We think this is a game changer for all recipients of a DePuy Pinnacle, or a recalled DePuy ASR, or any of the other metal on metal hip implant devices, that are now subject to national litigation, and we believe the process we have designed allows for more victims to get identified by the courts, so they can get compensated for their ordeal.” For more information metal on metal hip implants are encouraged to contact the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.com
The US Drug Watchdog is the premier pharmaceutical, and medical device watchdog in the United States. The group says, “We want to make certain all DePuy ASR hip implant recipients, and all DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients get a blood test to determine if their cobalt, and chromium levels are elevated. We believe the process we have developed is transparent, it is very simple, and it is vital if you have a metal on metal hip implant.” For more information please contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.com
