RTÉ News: 3,516 Irish had recalled hip device fitted
Typical this breaks on a friday evening when most Ortheapeadic Teams are off for weekend!!!
Ive had two of these hip replacements and one knee replacment and am due to have another knee knee put in next month.
This is bound to put massive pressure on HSE and medical teams as revision surgery is more costly and with higher risks. Not to mention recovery time, further pain and additional rehabilitation.
