The FDA recently announced concerns about the risks of metal-on-metal hip replacement systems. The metal parts in hip replacements slide against each other during walking or running. This may cause metal particles to wear off the hip replacement and to damage the hip replacement. In some cases the metal particles may even enter into the bloodstream.
Common problems which may indicate that your metal-on-metal hip replacement may not be working properly include:
- Pain in the groin, hip or leg
- Swelling at or near the hip joint
- A limp or change in walking ability
