“Metal on Metal Hips – Medical Consequences & Legal Implications”
When: Saturday 12th May 12.30pm Where: The Gresham Hotel, Dublin


Every year we host an annual conference on a developing medico-legal issue. There are over 12,000 people with MoM Hip Implants in Ireland.  The 2012 conference focused on Metal-on-Metal (MoM) Hip Implants, and the medical and legal consequences of hip implant failure. Our primary objective is to keep MoM Hip Implant patients updated on the most recent research developments into the health risks which may affect patients with MoM Hip Implants.

The conference explored the long term health issues of cobalt and chromium metal poisoning  and included a panel of medical experts from the UK. 

 Conference Programme

1:10 Mr. Alister Hart, Orthopaedic Surgeon & Clinical Senior Lecturer, Imperial College, London. Mr. Hart has performed over 70 hip revisions on MoM implants and in excess of 3000 hip and knee operations. He was instrumental in setting up The London Implant Retrieval Centre, an independent clinical research centre set up to research and investigate why MoM hip replacements fail. Mr. Hart’s surgical and research interests focus on achieving the best possible outcome for patients after hip replacements.

1:40 Professor Simon Frostick, Professor of Orthopaedics University of Liverpool. Professor Frostick will be addressing the issue of chromium and cobalt leeching into the blood stream and surrounding bone and tissue.

2:40 Mr. Duncan Whitwell, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon & Honorary Clinical Lecturer, University of Oxford. Mr. Whitwell was one of the first orthopaedic surgeons to identify and raise questions with regard to the many issues surrounding MoM Hip Implants through the research of the “Oxford Hip Research Group”. He is co-chair of the UK Metal Hip Research Group which coordinates research nationally. Mr. Whitwell will be presenting the surgeon’s perspective, his personal experience of MoM hip implant surgery and revision surgery. He will also focus on the subject of tissue and bone damage.

3:10 Raymond Bradley, Managing Partner, Malcomson Law. Raymond will speak on the legal implications and issues associated with MoM hip implants.
