Did You Have a Hip Replacement?
The first hip replacement was performed in 1962. Hip replacements are now commonplace. Each year, more than 285,000 Americans receive artificial hips. In general, patients who receive artificial hips have increased mobility, less pain and a better quality of life. However, the hip replacement can sometimes cause additional pain and damage.
The DePuy Hip replacement was introduced in 2005. Doctors applauded the innovative design and began to use the implant in surgeries. Oftentimes patients didn’t see the results they expected—the implants caused more pain and more stiffness.
In 2010, Johnson and Johnson reported that the hip implant had a higher than normal failure rate. This wasn’t the only problem – As the parts of the artificial hip rubbed together, metal debris was released into the body causing serious side effects. More than 12,000 Americans have needed painful and risky hip revision surgery.
