Home Healthy Living Medicine & Health Science DefectiveHipReplacement by griffithdaisy Think Twice before Stepping Forward for Defective Hip Replacement When talking about hip replacement, researches have shown that nearly 3,10,000 Americans undergo partial or total hip replacement surgery each year. Operations are done with an aim of relieving the patients from the pain of arthritis. The estimated cost of surgery lands between $20,000 and $50,000. As people are aging, this surgery is becoming more common among the masses. A defective implant can cause adverse effects leading to permanent injury and additional surgeries to possible death even. These kind of surgeries leaves a heavy impression on the patient's mind along with the emotional damaging effects to an individual and also the family members. Financial stress can also be a consequence of repeated hip implants. Let's know what this surgery is all about. For treating the damaged hip an artificial hip is made up of two parts. These two pieces are created to duplicate the ball and socket design. There is one metal ball and a stem that fits into the thigh bone. The socket is a titanium shell which is lined with polyethylene that fits against the pelvic bone. The titanium for socket is designed to be porous so that it can easily fuse to the bone. Many people go through these surgeries daily and experience problem a little early or in later stages of defective hip replacement surgery. But it is hard to accept that the procedure of replacement is not the main cause of concern. The material which is used while making the duplicate parts is the main cause of pain and injury of many people. It is hard to believe that the problem was in the four mineral based oils which was used in the lubricants during the process of manufacturing. The oils were unable to make any contact with the human body. The leaking oil prevented the body bones and shell to bond properly and it became a main cause of hip replacement recalls. If any patient goes through the defective hip implant then he is liable to quote a lawsuit on the manufacturer of the hip implant products. In recall procedure, the patient gets the compensation for everything in the form of money ranging from medical bills, medication, money spent on surgery, revised surgery as well.
