Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacements


In recent years, “metal-on-metal” total hip replacements and resurfacing replacements have received some negative press. However the majority of metal-on-metal hip replacements and resurfacing prostheses function very well. Nevertheless, some patients with metal-on-metal hip prostheses may have concerns about their replacement or may even develop problems as a result of the metal-on-metal hip replacement. In such cases, Mr Tai is happy to advise you about your hip.
