"Most hip replacements are having problems with metal leeching, not just metal on metal."

The take home message is cobalt poisoning from hip implants is common. Many medical providers are under the impression the metal on metal hip implants are the only implants at risk. The neurological issues can develop over time.

Dr Towers story about his own experience with having a hip implant is featured on the new Netflix documentary "The Bleeding Edge".
