DePuy Hip Replacement Recall - Have You Been Affected?

Every day in the US, people go into hospital for surgery. Replacement hip surgery is a necessity for many older Americans in particular. In fact, 93,000 people have had the DePuy replacement hip installed across the world.

When electing to have surgery on the hip, many people are unaware that the surgery could be doing more harm than good. Unfortunately, that was the case with these DePuy replacement hips – the DePuy ASR XL Acetabular system and the DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing system – which were recalled in August 2010.

The recall was a shock to many people who have had a replacement hip installed but it came as little surprise to the many who have suffered such serious side effects as pain in the hip, thigh or groin, pain when walking, standing up or bearing weight, and swelling, or to the people who have had to have yet another surgery to replace the faulty hip.

Of course, many people will be unaware of what brand of hip they had installed. So the first thing to do is call your doctor or hospital where you had the surgery performed to find out if it was one of the DePuy replacement hips. The second thing you should do is contact a DePuy hip replacement recall lawyer.
