A subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, DePuy Orthopaedics is a primary manufacturer of hip replacement products. Certain designs within their line of products, however, have been found to cause serious complications and pain for patients. These issues can lead to long-term or permanent discomfort and mobility problems.
At Eglet Prince, we advocate for patients who trusts their hip replacements to improve mobility and quality of life. The products should have been more thoroughly tested before distribution for widespread use among patients. While many of these products have been recalled, the effects of the defects linger for many patients.
If you suffer pain as a result of a botched hip replacement or have had to undergo premature hip revisions, our trial lawyers may be able to help. We stand beside these patients, fighting to ensure that they are fully compensated for their pain. Contact us today at 702-450-5400 or 800-450-5406 toll free.
These products have been found to have a high rate of failure compared to industry standards. Failure can include:
General wear and tear of the products can also lead to long-term pain and complications. These issues require revision surgery where the system must be fixed or resurfaced to alleviate the pain. Even with the costly revisions and lengthy physical therapy sessions, the pain may not completely go away. The pain and frustration many patients experience is severe.
Recalled products include both initial hip replacement systems and resurfacing products. Some chief offenders include the DePuy ASR XL Acetabular Systems and the DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing Systems. If you were provided either of these systems or a different defective hip replacement or resurfacing product, we can help.
