What Is the Microport Profemur Modular-Neck Hip Implant?

This is a metal-on-metal hip implant which features a modular neck, which is essentially an adjustable/moving piece designed to ease recovery by equalizing limb length and balancing the hip. According to the manufacturer’s website, more than 270,000 of these systems have been sold worldwide since 2000.

Why Was the Implant Recalled?

This hip implant has been recalled due to a risk of the modular neck breaking or fracturing suddenly, causing severe pain, limiting your ability to walk, and potentially leading to a host of other complications. Additionally, the movement of the metal parts may potentially cause metallosis, which is essentially a buildup of metallic debris in your muscles, ligaments, and other soft tissue. If you have experienced any complications related to the metal neck fracture, you may be entitled to compensation.

If you experience any of the following complications, call (864) 408-8890 immediately:

  • Sudden, severe pain in the hip
  • Trouble walking or unable to walk
  • Any serious trauma to the hip or leg, such as falling
  • A loss of feeling in the leg
  • A tingling sensation in the leg
