DePuy Pinnacle Hip Replacement Attorneys
The DePuy Pinnacle Hip Replacement is a metal-on-metal hip replacement device made of cobalt-chromium alloy. According to some hip surgeons, these metal-on-metal hip implants may begin to wear quickly, causing the patient’s body to absorb significant amounts of metal debris. Many patients who received a Depuy Pinnacle hip replacement have reported severe inflammatory reactions and/or metallosis due to dangerously elevated cobalt and chromium levels in their blood. The high cobalt and chromium levels found in these patients have been directly linked to the metal debris from these metal-on-metal Depuy Pinnacle hip implants. Metallosis symptoms in these patients were commmonly associated with other complications like pain, swelling and difficulty walking. Many DePuy Pinnacle hip replacement victims require a revision surgery to replace the defective DePuy Pinnacle hip replacement with another hip implant.
