Nothing is more devastating than having an injury that does not allow you to go back to work. This was especially tough for one of our clients who was a landscaper and could no longer able to make a living.
As a landscaper, it is vital that the person be able to move, bend, and use their legs and hands. So when our client had a hip replacement that began to fail on him, his whole livelihood was put into jeopardy.
A hip replacement device acts as a ball and cup inside the body, allowing the device to let the hip move naturally. Recently, there have been numerous adverse effects on certain replacement devices failing. A metal-on-metal device runs the risks of metal shavings breaking down and entering the body. Other devices have been shown to cause everything from tissue loss to bone death. As the device fails, the patient needs to have more surgeries to repair the issue and to put in a new device. And that’s if the hip hasn’t gotten to the point where it cannot be revised or replaced. Watch this video now to learn more.
