When a medical implant fails, it can result in serious consequences and unforeseen medical expenses. If you or a loved one have received an OMNI artificial hip replacement, you may be at risk for Metallosis or other health issues.
The following symptoms may indicate that you require revision surgery to have the implant removed:
- Development of infections within the joint
- Audible popping or grinding sounds coming from the implant
- Start of cardiomyopathy and other heart conditions
- Loss of cognitive function
- Previously undiagnosed thyroid problems
- Sudden changes in vision or hearing
Individuals who received the K2 or Apex K2 Artificial Hip Replacement should get consult with their physician as soon as possible, regardless of the presence of the above symptoms.

METAL-ON-METAL HIP IMPLANTS
While every surgical procedure or implantation comes with its own set of risks, metal hip implants have been proven to have more common and serious associated risks.
Metal-on-metal hip systems have now been shown to cause bone fractures near the joint, sometimes loosening or moving the joint after implantation. When this occurs, pieces can wear off and enter the bloodstream, causing Metallosis.
Risks associated with this include:
- Inflammation at the site of joint
- Kidney damage
- Neurological damage
- Skin rashes
- Thyroid issues
- Mood or cognitive impairment.
