Wright CONSERVE® Total Resurfacing Hip System

The Wright CONSERVE® Total Resurfacing Hip System has been linked to a number of very serious health problems found in hip replacement patients who received this potentially defective hip implant. For some patients, the implant has been shown to fail long before expected, requiring a patient to have their implant replaced in a costly and often painful surgical procedure. For others, the metal-on-metal implant has caused the metals in the implant to damage nearby tissue, leaving a patient unable to walk comfortably.

If you or someone you love has suffered because of Wright’s CONSERVE hip implants, there may be legal options available to pursue financial compensation for those injury expenses.

The Consequences of a Wright CONSERVE Hip Implant Failure

Unfortunately, Wright’s metal-on-metal CONSERVE® Total Resurfacing Hip System may fail, requiring hip implant replacement surgery for those affected. In addition, the metal in the implant system may prove toxic for some patients, leading to metallosis. Metallosis occurs when the tissue around the implant dies, walking becomes painful and difficult, and the nerves around the implant may sustain damage. Financially, a failure with these hip implants may be responsible for the following issues:

  • Increased treatment costs due to necessary implant replacement surgery
  • Additional physical therapy after implant replacement surgery
  • Medical care costs after the development of metallosis
  • Possible loss of income due to extended treatment and recovery times

These financial concerns may weigh down a household considerably. However, compensation for these expenses may be available through a product liability lawsuit.
