DePuy Hip Implant Recall Lawyer

In August 2010, DePuy Orthopaedics, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson issued a voluntary recall of its ASR TM XL Acetabular Hip System and DePuy ASR TM Hip Resurfacing System.  This recall because a study showed that many patients who received the hip implants suffered from pain, stiffness and swelling, followed by popping and grinding sensations, which interfered with their ability to walk, stand, or sit for long periods of time.

These symptoms worsened over time resulting in severe disability often requiring a second hip replacement surgery. This second surgery is known as a hip revision surgery and it is not without pain and a recovery period.  We see this also in Biomet hip replacements.

DePuy Hip Implant Recall Attorney

DePuy Orthopedics defectively designed the ASR hip implant systems. Some experts believe that the “acetabular cup” may be the problem since it is shallower than other proven hip implants. Tiny metal shavings and debris may damage the surrounding tissue causing the pain as discussed above but also can prevent a successful surgery in the hip revision surgery.

According to the Recall Pack issued by DePuy, the defects also include component loosening and misalignment, dislocation of the elements, infection, fracture of the bone, metal sensitivity, and pain.
