Dr. Bertrand Kaper answered
28 years experience Orthopedic Reconstructive Surgery
See an Orthopaedist: Given your history of a metal-on-metal hip replacement and the presence of pain in your hip, i would recommend you see an orthopaedic surgeon specializing in hip replacement and hip revision surgery. An xray, physical examination and possible further imaging studies (ct or MRI scan) is indicated.
