The Risks of Metal Implants
A hip implant is designed to replace the ball and socket joint of the hip. Many of these implants contain a metal ball and cup often made of Cobalt and Chromium. Over time, however, it was found that the metal-on-metal surfaces experienced erosion and wear, releasing metal particles into a patient's bloodstream. These small particles may cause significant tissue and bone damage.
Hip replacements may also fail once the artificial joint detaches from the bone or when the ball dislocates from the socket. These effects are typically caused by poor build or material quality, and can often lead to expensive revision surgeries to remove the implant.
