What Should I Ask My Doctor about Metal-on-Metal Hip Implants?

If you think a metal-on-metal hip implant might help relieve your chronic pain from arthritis or your doctor has suggested you consider a hip implant, you probably have a number of concerns. The best way to make a decision about your options is to conduct research on your own and bring your questions to your doctor. You will need to have at least one consultation with your doctor and your surgeon prior to the procedure, which is the perfect time to review your questions. In addition to anything you find in your research, include the following questions:

•    Why is a metal-on-metal hip implant the best option for me?
•    What are the risks of this type of hip implant?
•    What are the risks associated with the surgery in general?
•    What are the side effects from metal-on-metal hip implants?
•    Is there anything I will be unable to do after the procedure? Are these things temporary?
•    How much improvement can I expect after the procedure?
•    How long will I need to participate in physical therapy during my recovery?
•    How will we address any complications that occur?
•    What is the expected lifespan of a metal-on-metal hip implant?

A common concern that often arises for metal-on-metal hip implant candidates is a reaction to metal.  This can include metal allergies or metal fragment release. Either of these problems can occur when a metal hip implant is placed in the body. Allergies typically occur quickly, while a reaction to metal fragment release can take years to occur. When talking with your doctor, ask what can be done to prevent metal from releasing into the bloodstream.

Chances are, he or she will tell you there is very little that can be done to prevent this. Hip implants work much like a regular joint, so friction is part of the process. This friction results in the scraping of metal, which breaks down the surface of the implant. Tiny fragments are released into the body and can build up over time. Some patients experience no reaction to this problem, but most can expect to experience at least a few symptoms. These symptoms are exacerbated when a person is already sensitive to metal.

Despite the risks associated with metal-on-metal implants, they are still the right option for some patients. This type of implant cuts down on friction and has a longer lifespan than other implant options. However, there are risks involved and patients and their doctors need to carefully consider their options before making a final choice.
