US Drug Watchdog Now Calls All Metal Hip Implant Failures the Biggest Disaster Ever for up to 500,000 U.S. Citizens and Offers the Names of the Best Attorneys for Victim

(PRWEB) July 12, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog is calling the US metal on metal hip implant failure disaster a tragedy that almost is beyond comprehension. The group says, “We are talking about half a million US citizens with metal on metal hip implants, with a possible 50% failure ratio? We want 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 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. 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. 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 is again demanding the US FDA aggressively get involved in the US Metal on Metal Hip Implant Disaster. The group says, “We are demanding to know what cobalt, or chromium poisoning will do to these metal on metal hip implant recipients. Aside from being crippled, or in constant pain, do we also have to worry about kidney, or liver issues. Why have a US FDA where panels are frequently made up of medical device, or pharmaceutical insiders?” 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
