Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacement Recall Medical Exhibits

With over 25 years of experience, MediVisuals has developed thousands of exhibits for a variety of products liability, personal injury and medical negligence cases. In order to best assist our clients with the current metal-on-metal hip replacement litigation, we are working to develop dynamic and truthful medical illustration and animation exhibits to effectively demonstrate the mechanism of failure and the recipients' resulting injuries.
 
Please review the medical illustrations and animations below. If you have any questions or would like to use any of these exhibits in a presentation, deposition, mediation or trial, please contact Bob Shepherd via email at bshepherd@medivisuals.com or call 800-899-2153.
