Frequently Asked Questions:

What is all the hype about metal on metal implants?
Metal-on-metal hip replacements have come under a lot of fire in recent years for health risks like severe pain and swelling. In other countries, the use of metal hip implants has been curtailed significantly, while groups like the FDA in the US are beginning to investigate whether or not the same sorts of practices should begin to occur here.

In the UK this year, artificial joint experts issued a recommendation that surgeons stop using metal-on-metal implants for a wide variety of reasons. With every type of hip replacement surgery, there is a chance that you will need a second hip replacement after a number of years, or that you will need a revision surgery to correct problems caused by extensive wear on the hip joint. The research that UK experts based their recommendation on shows that over 6% of patients who had metal-on-metal hip replacements needed a new hip replacement within just five years. Individuals who need hip replacements usually expect between 15-20 years of use out of their hip implants. According to the same research, only 2% of people who received ceramic or plastic hip implants needed a replacement within the same 5 year period.

Scrutiny directed at metal hip implants has also increased as industry experts become increasingly concerned about the release of metal particles into the bloodstream. No study has concluded that metal ions from a hip replacement can cause cancer or other illnesses when released into the bloodstream, but with countries across the world requiring yearly blood tests and other exams to carefully monitor metal toxicity levels, the FDA has also begun to delve deeper into the issue. While these devices are technically FDA approved, they were fast tracked and approved under something called the “510K system” without much testing at all, as alternatives to other hip replacements that were available at the time.

Because the US does not operate a national registry or record system to track the outcome of hip replacement surgeries, it is hard to be sure if there are patterns of health risks associated with metal hip implants that simply have not yet been noticed. Some patients have reported increased pain after short periods of time living with metal hip implants, and various companies over the years have been forced to recall their metal hip implants. Some metal implants have been removed from patients and replaced with another type of implant because they are causing severe pain and swelling that reduces mobility and comfort.
