DePuy Hip Replacement Loosening

Patients Experiencing Problems with a DePuy Hip Replacement May Have Legal Recourse

Our unsafe medical device lawyers are investigating claims involving defects in DePuy Hip replacement medical products. These claims center around premature loosening of these hip implants.

DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc., a Johnson & Johnson company, has recalled two of its hip implant products. The recall follows more than two years of complaints to the Food and Drug Administration. As a result of these premature product failures, many patients underwent a second hip replacement surgery called a “revision surgery”. These revision surgeries sometimes result in unnecessary pain and complications, including infection.

We are also investigating claims related to DePuy hip replacements causing Metallosis, a form of metal poisoning.

The recalled products include the ASR XL Acetabular System, a hip socket used in traditional hip replacement and the ASR Hip Resurfacing System, a partial hip replacement that involves placing a metal cap on the ball of the femur.

More than 90,000 of these devices have been implanted worldwide. DePuy holds itself out as a leading global provider of orthopaedic devices for hip, knee, extremities and trauma, as well as bone cement and operating room products.

If you or a loved one has been harmed by a unsafe medical device, contact us for a free consultation.

Clark Perdue has extensive experience handling claims involving defective medical devices. If you have suffered injury or pain as a result of a DePuy hip replacement, and you would like more information, contact the Ohio Depuy Hip replacement attorneys at Clark, Perdue & List.
