Defective implants: Doctors refuse to do hip surgery

A standoff at the Port of Spain General Hospital with at least one orthopaedic surgeon objecting to surgeries because of mismatched and defective component parts, saying it's putting patients' lives at risk.

Meanwhile more than one month after the complaint, the North-West Regional Health Authority says it's investigating the issue and awaiting the report.
