Smith & Nephew manufactures hip replacement systems called the Birmingham Hip Replacement (BHR) and the R3 Acetabular System, which has been known to cause many of the same problems as other hip replacement systems.
In 2007, a recall was issued for 185 Smith & Nephew Hip Replacements after a third-party contracter mislabeled a number of the items, causing incorrectly sized parts to be implanted into patients.
More recently, the ceramic liners on the R3 system were recalled by the FDA. Some of the liners had incorrectly place titanium rings, which pressed with higher force than authorized by the manufacturers.
Generally symptoms of a defective hip implant include extreme discomfort, sleeplessness, and fracturing of metal parts.
If a patient has had a defective prosthetic hip implanted, then he or she will probably have to undergo a painful and expensive hip revision surgery.
