Hip implants performing as expected – so far
What I would expect from a good warranty:
Lifetime replacement with additional compensation to pay for rehab, surgery, lost wages, pain, medications, private duty nurses. Definition of covered malfunctions including increased blood metal readings.
I was told that the doctor will choose the implant, that I have no say in the matter. Both hip implants have performed as expected. So far. The metal-on-metal one has ached and clunked some; the plastic on metal one has not done that.
