DePuy Hip Recall Lawyers

Affected DePuy Hip Replacement Products:

  • DePuy ASR (2005-2009)
  • DePuy ASR-XL (2008-2009)

Johnson & Johnson, and its DePuy Orthopaedics subsidiary, announced in August 2010 that it is recalling their hip implants. There has been a high rate of repeat surgeries needed by people who have received these hips.

Affected hip replacement parts involved in the recall include the DePuy ASR XL Acetabular System and the DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System. Patients who reported problems in the first several years and had revision surgery reported a variety of problems, including pain, swelling and problems walking.

We would like to review any cases where a DePuy hip device has caused discomfort; including hip pain, swelling or difficulty walking. Also, any individuals who are unsure of the type of hip device implant they may have received or anyone who has had a revision surgery.

Other issues that may indicate a serious problem with the hip implant include:

  • Loosening of the cup – when the implant does not stay attached to the bone in the correct position
  • Dislocation – where the two parts of the implant that move against each other are no longer aligned
  • Metal debris – where metal particles from the component parts moving together spread around the hip
  • Fracture – where the bone around the implant may have broken

We would like to review any cases where a DePuy hip device has caused discomfort; including hip pain, swelling or difficulty walking. Also, any individuals who are unsure of the type of hip device implant they may have received or anyone who has had a revision surgery.
