Hi, I am 32 years old and had CDH and hip displasia. My blood test revealed that
I have a metal allergy, so total hip replacement is the only option for me.
Answer from Gord RathboneI had a reaction to both chrome and cobalt, in preliminary skin tests, prior to
BHR 5 & 1/2 years ago. After considerable help from Keith Brewster and
other research came to the conclusion summarized by
that an internal tissue reaction is not something to worry about, being
statistically much less likely than being struck by lightning. If this is
presented as an obstacle to this excellent surgical solution of a hip
resurfacing, you should seek a second opinion, particularly at your young age.
