Johnson and Johnson Hip Recall

Hip replacement surgery is very common in the US. Most people who go in for surgery are unlikely to ask what make of hip is going to be implanted or even if there are chances that the hip could fail within just a few years.

They place their trust and faith in their doctors and surgeons, who likewise may have placed their faith in the product they were installing in the patient.

That is why the Johnson and Johnson hip recall comes as such a shock to many patients. Johnson and Johnson’s DePuy replacement hips, the DePuy ASR XL Acetabular system and the DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing system, were recalled in August 2010.

However, one of the most devastating aspects of the Johnson & Johnson hip recall is that Johnson & Johnson knew about the serious side effects of the products for many years before they were recalled. In fact, the Johnson & Johnson replacement hip products were voluntarily recalled in Australia in 2009 after Australian Medical Device Registry data discovered a high rate of failure in the products. However the recall was attributed to lack of sales in Australia by Johnson & Johnson.

This is despite the manufacturer having advised doctors in 2006 that the ASR replacement hips may fail in patients of small stature, such as women or people with weak bones.

Johnson & Johnson must be held accountable for what it did and that is why the hip recall attorneys at Ketchmark and McCreight, P.C. are helping victims of the Johnson & Johnson hip recall file lawsuits against the manufacturer.
