Wright PROFEMUR® Hip Implant

Metal-on-metal hip implants, such as Wright’s PROFEMUR implant, have been linked to several health concerns that may require intensive medical care for those affected. These implants have been cited as the cause of metallosis, a dangerous condition arising from excessive amounts of metal in the body, and hip implant failure. As a result, patients have been left with severe health problems and, often, a need for expensive medical care.

If you or someone you love has suffered because of a defective hip implant, we may be able to assist with the process of filing a personal injury claim for medical costs involved.

Problems Caused by a Wright PROFEMUR Hip Implant Failure

The consequences of a defective hip implant can prove severe for many patients, depending on these implants. In the case of metal-on-metal hip implants, these defects have been shown to cause the following problems:

  • Excessive pain or stiffness during walking
  • Swelling or discoloration at the site of the hip
  • Ongoing, constant pain
  • Nerve damage
  • Local tissue death

These health concerns may require quick medical treatment, as well as the eventual replacement of an implant no longer working. However, this medical care can prove too expensive for many patients to manage, especially if the implant failure occurs only a few years after the initial implant procedure.
