FAQ

Questions to Ask Your Surgeon about Metal-On-Metal Hip Implants
Metal-on-metal hip implants are a popular choice for hip resurfacing and hip replacement systems for many reasons. They are more durable and a patient is less likely to suffer a hip dislocation and breakage of the implant.
But metal-on-metal implants aren’t for everyone, and some people have experienced adverse reactions to these types of implants. It’s important that your orthopedic surgeon assesses your own personal needs, and avoids using these types of metal-based implants if under certain circumstances the risks outweigh the benefits.
Patients who shouldn’t have a metal-on-metal hip implant include those patients who:
•    Have kidney problems
•    Have metal allergies or sensitivities to metal
•    Have suppressed immune systems
•    Are receiving high doses of corticosteroids
•    Are Women who are of childbearing age
Here are some questions you may want to ask your orthopedic surgeon about metal-on-metal hip implants:
•    What are the risks and benefits of every type of hip implant device, including those made of metal, plastic, ceramic, and a combination of materials?
•    If a metal-on-metal implant is best for me, why is that?
•    What are your orthopedic surgeon’s personal experiences with metal hip implants and the surgical outcomes? What about hip resurfacing systems made of metal?
•    What kinds of symptoms should you expect to have following your surgery, and how long might you experience any symptoms?
•    Are there activities or movements that should be limited or restricted with a metal implant?
•    What types of reactions might occur because of a metal-on-metal implant, and how would the implant be evaluated? If the implant releases metal ions into your body, how could they be treated?
•    What types of symptoms should you report following the surgery?
•    If you do suffer a complication related to the metal implant, what’s the likelihood that the implant would have to be removed?
Your surgeon should know your complete medical history before you undergo surgery, especially if you’ve had any problems with your kidneys or if you have any known allergies, especially to metal. If you’ve had even minor allergic reactions to metal, such as wearing jewelry or even skin contact with your metal belt buckle, your surgeon will need to know that.
