This case involves an alleged defective hip implant. The plaintiff was a seventy-three-year-old female who experienced significant pain while walking. She consulted with her primary physician, who referred her to an orthopedic surgeon. The surgeon determined that a total hip replacement was required and she was scheduled for surgery. Four weeks later, the plaintiff underwent what was deemed a successful surgery. One year following the surgery, the plaintiff began feeling pain and swelling in her right hip, which resulted in difficulty walking. After two months of continual and progressive discomfort, she went back to the orthopedic surgeon to determine the cause of the pain. He determined that a significant amount of metallic debris had shed off into her body, resulting in metallosis. As a result, the plaintiff had to undergo revision surgery two weeks later to remove the implant. She likewise required long-term locomotor training in order to regain her balance and improve her movement.
