Facts about Hip Implants:

 

Hip replacement surgery is a common procedure for patients suffering from hip problems. According to the Department of Human and Health Services (HHS), it is the second most common procedure after knee replacement surgeries. The point of the entire exercise is to remove the diseased and damaged parts of the hip joint, especially after a bout of osteoarthritis, and replace them with synthetic mechanic parts which mimic the movements of the natural parts. 

According to a January 2013 FDA communication titled “Concerns about Metal-on-Metal Hip Implants,” studies have linked metal hip implants to many serious complications in areas outside the hip. These reactions may be due to high levels of metals (particularly cobalt) circulating in a patient’s bloodstream.
