The FDA has issued recalls for the DePuy Hip Replacement System

The first product under scrutiny is the DePuy ASR System, a product that is primarily used for hip resurfacing. The second product covered under the recall is the DePuy xl Acetabular System. Each of these systems has had reports of serious malfunctions that have caused patients to require further surgery. Now known as bad implants, these products have caused tremendous pain, suffering, and significant costs for the patient related to the additional medical procedures and hospital stays.

Some symptoms have included:

  • Pain
  • Local Swelling
  • Numbness
  • Changes in Ability to Walk
  • Skin Rash
  • Thyroid Dysfunction
  • Metallosis/ Blood Poisoning
  • Neurological changes such as auditory or visual impairments

In most of these cases, Johnson & Johnson is choosing to settle out of court. The size of the settlement depended on the level of suffering the patient endured, along with the direct financial burden related to the bad implant.

To date, only 10% of all patients who received a DePuy hip replacement have required additional surgery. Yet more patients are coming forward every day.

We are still accepting clients who have had revision surgery involving any of these brands:

  • Ethicon (J/J)
  • Bard
  • American Medical Systems (AMS)
  • Coloplast
