You may have read in the news that some patients with metal on metal hip replacements including hip resurfacing operations have developed pain and complications following their operations.
A reaction to the metal occurs in a very tiny number of patients.
Mr Waters offers a review service if you are either worried or symptomatic having had such a procedure. This includes blood tests, x-rays and scans if necessary. Often, reassurance is all that is necessary as complications occur in a very small minority of patients. If there is damage to surrounding tissues then Mr Waters will discuss how this can be treated.
