What You Need to Know About Hip Revision Surgery
A faulty hip replacement may cause extreme pain and medical complications. The defective ASR device has been found to loosen or to break apart in the hip resulting in bone fractures, infection, hip sensitivity, and joint dislocation.
DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc., owned by Johnson & Johnson, has issued a product recall on its ASR XL Acetabular and ASR Hip Resurfacing systems. The National Joint Registry (NJR) recently released a report that 12-13% of DePuy Orthopedics’ hip replacement patients will need a second hip replacement surgery (called revision surgery). Normal hip replacement implants last for approximately 15 years, but in some cases the ASR System breaks apart within 5 years of implantation.
Hip replacement surgery is an intensive medical treatment. The operation can require 2-4 days of hospitalization, and sometimes months of physical therapy rehabilitation.
The Bernard Law Group is conducting a thorough, independent investigation into medical product negligence claims. DePuy Orthopaedics’ ASR System hip implants may have violated health safety standards and put patients at risk for further medical complications.
Our expert attorneys plan to file lawsuits on behalf of recall victims nationwide. The team of aggressive and experienced legal professionals at the Bernard Law Group is actively reaching out to patients who received these devices.
