Hip Replacement Recall Announced 

DePuy Orthopaedics, a unit of Johnson & Johnson, announced the recall of two of it hip replacement devices because a high number of patient’s have required a second surgery.

These recalls concern the ASR XL Acetabular System, a hip socket used in traditional hip replacement, and the ASR Hip Resurfacing System, a partial hip replacement. It is estimated that more than 90,000  Depuy hip replacement devices  have been used worldwide. In a  recent study it was determined  that, almost  one (1) in eight (8) DePuy hip replacement  devices failed within a five year period and required a second  surgery .

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had been receiving numerious  complaints for for over two two years that the Depuy Hip replacement  devices failed early in some patients. Many orthopedic doctors believe that the units were poorly designed. And at  least one surgeon has testified that the Hip replacement units he removed from a patient had failed causing extreme damage.

If you have had hip replacement surgery after 2004 that has been manufactured by Depuy and have been suffering pain you should talk to your Doctor and contact a Depuy Hip Lawyer with experience in the Depuy Hip Recall.
