Finsbury ADEPT Metal on Metal Hip Implant

Article by

Finsbury ADEPT metal on metal hip implants were acclaimed as a “precision bearing, controlled using proprietary techniques developed specifically for metal on metal”. The Finsbury Orthopaedics ADEPT metal on metal hip resurfacing was intended to be a leading product. However, Garden House Solicitors have a number of clients and have received many enquiries from those who would disagree.

The Finsbury ADEPT is a metal on metal hip implant designed for the younger, more active patient requiring a hip replacement. Often the hip replacement is requires from osteoarthritis. Patients expect that their Finsbury ADEPT metal on metal hip implant would last a considerably long period of time but for many of the patients, and indeed those individuals who have instructed Garden House Solicitors, who have a Finsbury ADEPT metal on metal hip implant it is a different story. Many patients are complaining of implant loosening, soft tissue reactions, degradation of bone, swelling, problems walking and a number of other adverse symptoms.
These adverse symptoms are caused by the two metal components of the Finsbury ADEPT metal on metal hip implant rubbing together and releasing metal debris comprising of cobalt and chromium ions. These ions can lead to problems with the heart, thyroid or nervous system, to mention but a few. If left untreated the cobalt and chromium ions released from the Finsbury ADEPT metal on metal hip implant can have a severe impact on a revised hip implant.

Patients are advised to seek medical attention if they have a Finsbury ADEPT metal on metal hip implant and to request a blood test to measure the Cobalt and Chromium blood level as this test can indicate if a Finsbury ADEPT hip implant is failing prematurely.
