Lawsuit Claim Information

Artificial hip replacement manufacturer Smith & Nephew voluntarily recalled its Modular SMF and Modular Redapt hip systems in November 2016. Metal-on-metal hip implants can cause serious, life-threatening health complications such as toxic metal poisoning (metallosis), infection, premature implant failure, tissue necrosis and even death. According to 2015 financial reports, Smith & Nephew put aside $203M to settle metal-on-metal hip claims and associated legal expenses of $21M.

What's a Modular Hip Implant Component?

Typically, total hip replacement systems are monoblock in design. This means that they feature an all-in-one hip implant system that includes both the femoral neck and stem. Modular implants are separate, individual components used within an artificial hip replacement system. They were developed in hopes of offering patients greater flexibility and optimal sizing to more accurately fit the patient’s own natural anatomy. This versatility lets surgeons customize total hip replacements to meet each patient’s unique needs.

Modular Hip Implant Lawsuit Information

Lawsuits are being filed against Smith & Nephew for metal poisoning, fracture and premature failure of their Modular SMF and Modular Redapt femoral hip systems. Both hip implants were voluntarily recalled due to “a higher than anticipated complaint and adverse trend” in November 2016.

This is not the first time that Smith & Nephew has been sued. In 2007, the company agreed to pay $28.9 million to the U.S. Department of Justice for illegally paying surgeons to use its implant products during total hip arthroplasty and knee replacement procedures. In order to avoid criminal prosecution for violating anti-kickback statues, Smith & Nephew was also forced to undergo federal monitoring for 18 months.

Justice You Deserve

Due to Smith & Nephew’s lack of warning to patients and doctors about the risks of their recalled metal-on-metal hip implant systems, individuals have been exposed to life-threatening danger. If you or a loved one suffered from dangerous side effects after being surgically implanted with a Smith & Nephew artificial hip replacement, fill out the form above to see if you may be eligible for financial compensation from the manufacturer.
