The Villages Hip Replacement Recall Attorneys

Several medical device manufacturers have recalled products since 2003 when hip replacement systems were introduced. Most recently, DePuy Orthopaedics recalled two of its hip replacement systems. The ASR XL Acetabular Hip System and the ASR Hip Resurfacing System were recalled in mid-2010. Nearly 100,000 units are in use, showing a failure rate of about 12 percent.

Reported problems and complications of a defective hip replacement include:

  • Chronic pain
  • Greater risk of hip fracture
  • Impaired gait while walking
  • Risk of dislocation

Patients suffering from these complications are usually required to have corrective surgery to fix these problems.
