Neurologic Cobaltism & Cobalt-Chromium Implants

Today Dr. Steve Tower, who was featured in The Bleeding Edge documentary, made a public release of his research into neurologic cobaltism resulting from some medical devices like hip implants, knee implants, etc. Many patients with implants which contain cobalt-chromium alloys are misdiagnosed with dementia, Parkinson’s Disease, or other disorders due to the similar symptoms caused by cobalt toxicity, like:

  • Extreme Fatigue
  • Forgetfulness
  • Mood Disorders
  • Sleep Disorders
  • Imbalance & Muscle Weakness
  • Numbness in Extremeties
  • Tinnitus or Deafness
  • Tremors
  • Generalized Pain

You may download his research at the following link and share it with your healthcare providers if you think you are experiencing neurological symptoms from a cobalt-chromium (Co-Cr) implant.

You can also watch Dr. Tower’s public testimony at the FDA hearing on cobalt-chromium alloys in implantable medical devices, which was held in November 2020. We are still awaiting the immunology panel’s recommendations to the FDA as a result of the hearing.
