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

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. For media enquiries, please contact Andrew Mildren on +44 7956 448 730 or Giles Fraser on +44 7881 623 123
