Hip replacement patients go through a long and painful process even before their surgery.  For most, there is the realization that their aches and pains are caused by progressive arthritis that will only get worse, followed by pain and stiffness that increasingly impinge on their ability to go about their daily lives. Finally, there is the difficult and stressful decisions about when to get a hip replacement, what surgeon to choose, and what model to get.
Once the pain and inconvenience of surgery are over, most hope to escape from the constant medical concerns and return to the pain-free life they had before arthritis. So when a metal hip replacement is improperly aligned, causes pain or stiffness, or has to be replaced early, it can feel like a nightmare.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Stryker Hip Replacement Lawyer Eden Prairie MN
Some problems with failed hip replacements begin very shortly after the surgery. One such problem is leg length discrepancy. Implants must be sized and placed exactly right to avoid making the leg that is operated on longer. But this does not always work perfectly.  People with this problem may walk with a limp and be noticeably asymmetrical. If the difference is small, it can be corrected for with lifts in one shoe, but if it is larger than about an inch, it may need to be fixed with revision surgery.                                                                                                      
Another problem with hips that are not perfectly aligned is dislocation. This occurs when the ball slips out of the socket; it is very painful and requires the person be taken to a doctor and have their hip popped back into place under anesthesia.  If this happens repeatedly due to imperfect placement, the person may need another surgery.  And they may be afraid to live an active life for fear the hip will dislocate again.  Finally, pain is a serious and troubling complication for people who sought to escape pain by getting surgery.  A major cause of pain is wear and particle debris buildup. Particles, especially metal, build up the in the surrounding tissues, causing friction and prompting the immune system to attack them.  They may cause pseudotumors that painfully press on nerves and other tissues.  They may also suffer from pain caused by loosening of the implants.  This happens when the particles damage the bone around the implant, causing it to come loose.                                                                     
All these outcomes are psychologically and physically devastating for patients. A person who already endured years of reduced mobility from arthritis, now begins suffering from the same problems again, potentially missing out on work, leisure activities and fitness.  And they have to weigh the pros and cons of getting revision surgery, which may be difficult to afford depending on their insurance situation.                                                                                                   
Medical companies must behave more responsibly to test prostheses thoroughly before putting them on the market, and to pull those that have a heightened risk of premature failure. The FDA must act promptly to recall defective products and put out reliable information about the dangers of metal on metal implants. And doctors must keep up to date on all new information that comes out on the implants that they use in their practice.  These steps would greatly reduce patients’ pain and suffering.
