Update on Hip Implant Devices

Wright Medical Defective Hip Implant Device - Metal on Metal - Product Liability - Personal Injury Lawyer - Attorney

Wright Medical Hip Implant systems or devices, particularly the metal on metal hip implant devices such as the Wright Conserve Total Hip system, are causing the same type of problem experienced by patients who received the Johnson & Johnson Depuy metal on metal hip implant devices. Metal toxicity, or heavy metal poisoning, is being found in patients who have received Wright medical hip implant systems or devices. The problematic hip implant devices are the Wright Conserve Total Hip System, the Wright Profemur Total Hip System and the Wright Profemur Z. These metal on metal hip implant devices have a shallow cup, just like the Johnson & Johnson hip implant systems. The metal ions that cause the problems are cadmium and chromium, both of which are released by the hip implant device as it wears. Many health problems are associated with the buildup of such metal ions and the end result may be a complete replacement or revision of the hip implant system. Please contact us immediately if you are having health problems related to a hip implant. We can assist you in determining if your particular hip implant system is a known cause of your health problems. We can then protect your interests as necessary.
