Hip Replacements And Medical Device Defects That Can Cause Serious Injury

Hip replacement technology has come a long way to help patients eliminate pain and improve quality of life. Unfortunately, the technology developed by some medical device manufacturers is not always safe. When it fails, patients often experience even more pain and suffering at the hands of the health care professionals and product manufacturers they trusted with their lives.
