During a hip replacement, a prosthesis or artificial part is surgically implanted into a person’s body to replace an injured or damaged joint. The goal of this procedure is to restore hip function, improve mobility, and ease pain. Unfortunately, the hip replacement sometimes fails because the device itself is defective. Recently, several hip replacement devices have been proven defective and been recalled.
