New York attorney Scott Harford of Lynch Daskal Emery talks about how patients are suffering metal poisoning due to defective medical devices.
A hip replacement device manufactured by DePuy Orthopedics was developed to help patients live a full life with an active lifestyle. The device acts as a ball and cup design to help the hip move in a natural way. The danger comes from the wear and tear of the device and corrosion. The metal ions made of cobalt and chromium can actually break off and enter your bloodstream causing medical conditions such as inflammation, pain, metal poisoning, and even tissue death. The device has even been reported on in the New York Times as doctors have explained how much pain a patient suffers from the device and even the removal by a surgeon. Watch the video to learn more.
