What common injuries do patients suffer from DePuy hip implants?

DePuy hip replacements, specifically the metal-on-metal type, have been found to cause a number of injuries, illnesses, and other medical side effects in patients who receive the device. The severity of these medical conditions ranges from minor to serious.

  • Cellular toxicity
