FDA Safety Warnings | Synovo Total Hip Resurfacing System
On January 3, 2024, the FDA issued an official warning letter urging health care providers not to use the Synovo Total Hip Resurfacing System due to safety concerns.
Certain products found within the Synovo Total Hip System have been altered without FDA approval, meaning the system may now be defective and could cause harm to patients.
Modified Synovo Total Hip System products include the:
- Acetabular Bearing
- Acetabular Fixation Cup
- Femoral Resurfacing Cup
If you have a Synovo Total Hip System made with faulty parts, the device may break down and put you at risk of experiencing serious side effects.
Side Effects Caused by Synovo Hip Replacement Products
Modified Synovo hip replacement products can cause side effects ranging from mild to severe. In some cases, surgery may be required to remove the device.
Potential side effects of Synovo hip replacement products include:
- Bone loss over time
- Device loosening
- Difficulty bearing weight
- Grinding noises during movement
- New or worsening pain
- Weakness in the hip area
If you received a total hip replacement with Synovo products after 2019 and are now experiencing symptoms, contact your doctor immediately. If you are not experiencing any side effects, your doctor should continue to monitor your device.
