The last thing you want to find out after hip replacement surgery is that the replacement part you received may prematurely fail and cause severe pain and other serious injuries. Metal-on-metal hip devices were originally thought to be a more durable alternative to ceramic or plastic models, but some studies have shown that they may deteriorate faster, expose patients to high levels of metals such as cobalt and chromium, and fail at a higher rate than older implants. In fact, approximately one in 12 recipients of metal-on-metal devices may require corrective surgery within five years of implantation.

Common Metal-On-Metal Hip Replacement Side Effects

  • Metallosis (metal poisoning)
  • Cobalt poisoning
  • Corrosion
  • Pseudotumors
  • Bone loss
  • Inflammation
  • Chronic pain
  • Tissue necrosis
  • Failure of the device
  • Early revision surgery

Metal-on-metal hip implants are very durable and can withstand the active lifestyle of younger patients. They have less wear and are compatible with larger bearings than implants made of other materials. However, their durability comes at a price. Metal-on-metal hip implants can shed metal particles that may cause a number of serious health issues, such as a type of metal poisoning called metallosis. Metal-on-metal hip implants have been scrutinized because of design flaws and early failure rates. Several manufacturers, including DePuy and Stryker, have recalled one or more all-metal hip implants.
