Cobalt-Chromium Toxicity Exposure: What Patients Need To Know Now

Hip implants have long been touted as a life-changing medical advancement designed to improve a person’s quality of life. However, in some cases patients end up in more pain and discomfort than they originally presented with due to toxic poisoning from defective devices, and it is commonly a result of Cobalt Chromium Toxicity. Unfortunately, thousands of hip replacement patients are discovering that, whether or not they have symptoms, their hip implants are releasing cobalt and chromium particles into their bodies.

The primary hips that have been associated with this complication include DePuy ASR, Stryker Rejuvenate, Stryker ABG II Modular, Biomet Magnum, DePuy Pinnacle, Wright ProFemur, and Conserve Plus.

At Kershaw-Talley, we represent hundreds of people who have been negatively impacted by prosthetic hip implants that are leaching dangerous cobalt and chromium ions into their bodies. Based on the multitude of questions we have received from our clients, we know there is a great deal of concern surrounding the impact high levels of cobalt and chromium can have on a patient’s overall health. Alongside this challenge, is the crucial question of deciding whether to have a prosthetic hip removed.

In order to help guide hip patients in making this difficult choice, we have compiled the most comprehensive, up-to-date information to help patients make informed decisions about their health.
