Replacement Hip Failure Lawsuits

In March 2010, the Depuy Orthopedics manufacturer of hip replacements recalled its product after it became apparent that the product was no safe for people to use. However, close to two years later, the manufacturer is still involved in hip replacement lawsuits and responding to complaints relating to its product.


The problem is that the people who were fitted with a Depuy hip replacement device when the product was not considered to be dangerous are now suffering from the consequences. These victims are having to deal with painful hip revision surgery and cover the costs of this surgery too.

Depuy hip replacement history
By the time the Depuy Orthopedics had completely phased out the use of its hip replacement product worldwide by the end of 2010, roughly 250,000 people in the US alone had been implanted with the product.

Statistics reveal that roughly 1 in 8 patients who have received the Depuy hip replacement will require hip revision surgery at some point. In particular, a lot of the research into Depuy hip replacement lawsuits reveals that patients at the highest risk are those with small statures (such as women) or weak bones.

What are the Depuy hip replacement defects?
It appears that the Depuy hip replacement flaw can be found in the design, that the shape of the device is what is causing the problems.

The New York Times has also associated the Depuy hip replacement failure to the use of metal on metal in the implant’s make-up. It is believed that the metal on metal design creates large amounts of metal debris during normal wear and tear and that this debris is what results in the replacement hip failure.
