Dr Stephen Tower discusses Metal on Metal Hip Issues
Paul Taylor said:
Very interesting video, and it is great that he has taken such an interest in researching all the MoM failure’s. We need more like this man, as 1 voice is simply not enough, and MoM issues have gone silent again in the Press. Here in the UK anyway.
Im 2 years into my revision now, with my plastic / ceramic hip. And although the hip is great now (functionally), I still get a lot of surrounding hip pain, sometimes enough to bring me to tears, or make me bed bound for a day or two. If this is to do with the previous MoM tissue damage, or nerve damage due to 7 hip operations I will probably never know. Studies into post MoM revision would also be beneficial to see recovery statistics.

Yes! He had DePuy ASRs personallly and became very sick. So a very personal interest.

I totally agree with you Paul, we need many more voices of the patient and not industry. I too am in the UK.
I am a patient recovering from MoM resurfacing 2007 had to be revised to THR 2011.
Great video presentation although frightening that we were all just gullible guinea pigs in the money merry-go-round of the devices industry. The MHRA here have done nothing to stop people suffering and I think the Silent Recall mentioned in this presentation is a great analogy of state-owned.
Please get in touch with Gayle email@example.com as at least we can talk.
I hope someone reads this. I have made a decision and i need everyones support. I have been through at least 20 lawyers. Smith and nephew have hidden behind premarket approval on bhr until all legal recourse for me has been exhausted. I have watched my elderly parents sell the home i grew up in to care for me. My son was never able to go to college….caring for me. Im sick with no health care. I have lost everything. I am going to memphis to corporate on monday 4/34/17. I am going on a hunger strike. What little is left of me…they can have. I feel as if i wont leave memphis. My hope is to draw attention to what this company will do to protect profits. Please help me. Please spread the word through social media. Thank u. Paige. 276-492-1951
Hi Paige, so sorry there has been no further progress. Seems like some S&N court cases moving ahead – details on my Facebook group, Total Hip Replacement News. But it is not something you or I can afford. I hope your plans produce some results.
