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.
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 enough. But medical malpractice cases are complicated. Dealing with a massive corporation like Johnson & Johnson on your own can be risky. You may also have to deal with your insurance company if your DePuy Hip Replacement needs to be replaced. Knowing what to do can be difficult.
