Has MOM worn out its welcome?

Recently, the United Kingdom’s Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency issued an alert on metal-on-metal (MOM) hip devices. That prompted AAOS Now to contact several prominent joint replacement specialists to discuss the use of MOM in hip resurfacing and hip replacement and how to address the issue with patients.

AAOS Now editorial board member Victor Goldberg, MD, served as moderator; joining him were Robert L. Barrack, MD; John M. Cuckler, MD; Joshua J. Jacobs, MD; William J. Maloney, MD; Richard H. Rothman, MD; and Thomas P. Schmalzried, MD.
