FAQ                              

When people undergo surgery, everyone wants to choose the best doctor, the best procedure for them, and in the case of hip replacement, the best artificial hip. But little conclusive evidence exists about which is actually best.  With dozens of models on the market, patients often end up choosing a model based only on what their doctor has happened to have good results with.  To make things worse, every material that replacement hips can be made from comes with significant risks.                                                                                                                               
In recent years it has become clear that metal on metal systems are the most strongly associated with risks. Associated problems include severe pain, loosening of the device, bone damage, metal poisoning and failure of the implant.  All of these are associated with metal because of its especially harmful effect on human tissues.  When metal particles come loose due to wear, they build up in the joint and cause irritation and inflammation of nearby tissues, including bone. When bone is damaged, the implants cemented to it can begin to come loose.                                                                                                                                                      
Metallosis, or metal poisoning, can also be a reason for revision surgery. In this complication, metal ions that leach into the bloodstream create inflammation and oxidation throughout the body, causing negative mental, cognitive, digestive and other symptoms. The only effective treatment is to remove the source of the toxin.  Metal wears 60 times less than plastic (used in the most common models), but the particles it does emit are especially harmful.
Studies have shown that metal on metal systems are more likely to require early revision than MOP. Many models of metal on metal hip have been recalled after the high revision rates came to light, and many others have been the subjects of lawsuits.                                                            
Medical device manufacturers are required to perform extensive testing before releasing a product on the market in order to ensure its safety. However, the testing that does occur clearly is not catching all the problems and risks. metal on metal hip systems have been installed in hundreds or thousands of patients before ultimately being recalled.  When a device has already been installed, it is too late to undo without painful and costly revision surgery.                                                                                                                                                             
Companies must do much more thorough and conscientious testing of their products before they are released on the market.  And the scientific community as a whole must do more research on how metal on metal hips perform compared to other materials. If they really cause a much higher complication rate, as some evidence suggests they may, surgeons should use caution and discontinue using them.
