Attention DePuy hip replacement recipients. A massive, worldwide recall for DePuy Hip Replacement implants has been issued by Johnson & Johnson, the parent company for DePuy Orthopaedics. The recall affects ASR XL Acetabular Hip System and DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System. If you have another type of artificial hip and experience pain and suffering, continue reading. We can help.
Artificial hips covered by the recall were surgically implanted after July 2003. If you had a DePuy Hip installed after July 2003, your device has been recalled.
Why is Johnson & Johnson recalling the devices? According to the company’s official web site, “data recently received by the company shows that more people than expected who received the ASR Hip System experienced pain and other symptoms.” Other symptoms include knee swelling and problems walking.
Sounds simple. But medical malpractice cases are complicated. Dealing with a corporation like Johnson & Johnson on your own may be risky. You may also have to deal with your insurance company. Be careful. Medical cases are very tricky.
