DePuy Hip Replacement is a procedure, instituted by DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. to relieve pain and stiffness and restore mobility. Thousands of people across the U.S. were implanted with DePuy Orthopeadic’s defective ASR hip replacement system between 2005 and 2010, when it was finally recalled. Many have experienced the premature failure of their DePuy ASR hip implant within just few years of their surgery. Even those patients who haven’t yet experienced problems with their DePuy ASR hip implant face an uncertain future.
Recalled DePuy devices include the following:
- ASR – high failure rate of the implant working as it should. Failure occurs within five years or less when the product should last at least 10 to 15 years.
- Pinnacle – causes Osteolysis, Osteomylitis, revision surgery, hip pain, thigh pain, groin pain, severe swelling, disabling pain, loosening of implant and early failure.
