DePuy Hip Recall

Hip replacement surgery is a serious undertaking, and in light of this fact, doctors and patients have a substantial interest in choosing a device that will last as long as possible. The DePuy ASR XL Acetabular hip replacement was initially supposed to fulfill this goal, with marketing materials promoting a much longer life-span than similar devices. However, it quickly came to light that not only did the DePuy hip implant have a worryingly high failure rate, but that it was also linked to a number of different serious health problems.

As a result, DePuy instituted a full recall of its hip implants in 2010. Unfortunately, by that point, a substantial number of people had already undergone surgeries involving the device. As a result, many have chosen to sue DePuy for the challenges that they may now face.
