In August, DePuy Orthopaedics, a subsidiary of Johnson and Johnson, announced a recall of defective parts used in hip replacement surgeries. People who received the parts are experiencing serious problems, often resulting in the need for additional surgeries. However, even if a patient has no symptoms of problems currently, they may be at risk for future illness and injury as a result of metal poisoning. Anyone who has had an artificial hip replacement may be in danger of serious health problems.
