Smith & Nephew, the manufacturers of these hip replacements, have been accused of neglectfully marketing faulty metal-on-metal hip replacements that caused blood poisoning resulting in severe pain, lack of mobility and additional corrective surgeries. This hip replacement was used popularly in patients who needed partial hip resurfacing or complete hip replacement from 2006 to 2015.
