Omaha DePuy Hip Implant Lawyer

Hip Implant Recalls

The hip joint plays a vital role in providing a person with mobility as well as the capacity to perform daily tasks. However, severe arthritis pain or hip joint damage can cause an individual to require a hip replacement, which involves a highly invasive surgery and extensive physical therapy.

Patients expect their trust and confidence in manufacturers and designers of orthopedic systems and devices to be upheld. The last thing a patient who has hip replacement surgery expects to experience is hip replacement device failure that requires revision surgery. Sadly, this is what many patients who have received the DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc., ASR™ XL Acetabular System and DePuy ASR™ Hip Resurfacing System have had to endure. These hip replacement prostheses have now been recalled after it was discovered that they have an extraordinarily high failure rate. DePuy Orthopeadics Inc. is a Johnson & Johnson company.

Any patient who had one of these potentially defective hip prostheses used for their hip reconstruction is at risk for device failure.

Data provided by the National Joint Registry (NJR) of England and Wales in 2010 revealed a five-year revision rate of about 12 percent for the ASR™ Hip Resurfacing System and about 13 percent for the ASR™ XL Acetabular System. Some of the most common complications associated with the recalled DePuy hip implant devices include:


  • Excessive and unexplained hip pain or discomfort
  • Hip implant device loosening
  • Hip system failure
  • Second hip replacement or revision surgery

Any patient who had one of these potentially defective hip prostheses used for their hip reconstruction is at risk for device failure and/ or the above listed complications. Protect yourself and get informed. Contact Cullan & Cullan LLC today.
