Portland Orthopedic Malpractice Lawyers

As our American population ages, orthopedic procedures to replace worn-out joints is becoming increasingly common. One joint that suffers the most degeneration due to repetitive stress is the hip joint where the femur aligns in a socket in the pelvic bone. Over a lifetime, the articular cartilage wears thin, exposing the ligament and joint capsule to the raw bone of the femoral head. Several medical manufacturing companies manufacture titanium prosthesis ball and socket components to replace the natural bone, with the intent of revitalizing the ability for the hip joint to move freely.

Orthopedic surgeons are required to understand the specific components and surgical procedure required for the type of prosthetic hip replacement part they implant. A diagnostic error in the severity of the problem, or a mistake made in the surgery can have a disastrous and painful result in the patient. In the event the surgeon does everything right, there is still the possibility that the hip prosthesis itself will create medical problem, as is the case with DePuy hip replacement prosthesis, currently under recall.

If you or a loved one has suffered a medical problem related to an orthopedic hip replacement procedure in an Oregon or southwestern Washington orthopedic surgery center, you may have a claim to recover compensation for additional surgery, medical care, pain and all monetary damages related to the negligence on every party held liable for your injuries.
