This case involves the alleged failure of an artificial hip. The plaintiff, a fifty-nine-year-old male, was having issues with his hip, and his primary care physician suggested that he have an artificial hip resurfacing arthroplasty procedure. The plaintiff was referred to an orthopedic surgeon, and the implantation was performed without incident. Two years after the procedure, however, the plaintiff began to experience significant discomfort, which included swelling and, what was later revealed to be, bone deterioration around the hip area. The plaintiff had an additional procedure performed, in which the original hip implant was removed, and a new one was implanted. The plaintiff brought suit against the hip implant’s manufacturer, alleging that the hip was defective. Regarding the case, there was a question as to the original design of the hip and how the actual hip implanted may have deviated from it.
