Our goal is to identify at least two hundred and fifty thousand US recipients of metal on metal hip implants, and to get them identified by the best possible law firms. We will not stand by as hundreds of thousands of US citizens get left on the curb holding the bag with a problem that should not be their’s.” The US Drug Watchdog number one goals of their Metal on Metal Hip Implant Failure Initiative 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 law firms.

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 law firms to help them. The US Drug Watchdog is now calling premature failures of metal on metal hip implants perhaps the largest medical device failure in US history, 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. 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. Five hundred thousand US citizens received a all metal hip implant.” Recipients of a metal on metal hip implant are encouraged to contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.com

According to the US Drug Watchdog, “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. We think a blood test for cobalt, and or chromium are the best ways for any metal on metal hip implant recipient, has a failed hip implant device.” http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
