Hip Implant Recall
In August of 2010 Johnson and Johnson Services, Inc. announced a recall of the ASR Acetabular System and Depuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System. Both of these hip replacement devices were recalled due to a high number of patients who experienced a failure in their replacement hip and required a second hip replacement surgery.
All of the side effects associated with these metal on metal devices may not always be readily apparent to the patient and may include complications from metal poisoning which results when the device sheds metallic fragments into the bloodstream of the patients.
These two defective devices were manufactured and marketed since 2003. Therefore, patients who have had a hip replacement surgery since 2003 may be subject to this recall. There were approximately 93,000 patients who have been implanted with these potentially defective devices.
Many patients have already filed claims for compensation from the manufacturer of these devises.
If you have been implanted with one of these hip replacement devices or are uncertain as to type of your hip replacement device , contact our office so that we may discuss your potential claim with you. It is important for you or a loved one who has had hip replacement surgery to be aware that your potential claim may be subject to strict time limits in which you can seek compensation. Therefore, it is critical that explore your options with out delay.
