Medical Question

During a hip replacement surgery on my husband four years ago a metal band was placed on his lower femur that we were not informed of and this was discovered during a recent doctor's visit. My husband has experienced pain in this area since the surgery and the doctor believes this band is causing the pain. Should we have been informed by the surgeon that the band was placed there and the reason for it?

Thank you.
