HCA International latest advice for patients with metal-on-metal hip replacements

11 July 2012

The safety and comfort of our patients is HCA’s primary concern.

You may have recently read about the advice to patients who have received metal-on-metal hip replacements regarding regular monitoring, irrespective of being symptomatic. 

We would advise all patients who believe they have had this type of prosthesis implant at a HCA Hospital to visit their GP if they are not already under the care of a specialist.

Any patient with concerns can also call the HCA Connect helpline number 020 7079 4344 for information and advice.
