DePuy Orthopedics, a subsidiary company of Johnson and Johnson, has recently released news of a recall of two of their popular DePuy hip replacement systems due to a high failure rate. While a hip replacement is supposed to last well over twenty years, a recent study has demonstrated that 12-13 percent of all patients will require a revision surgery within 5 years. Patients across the United States are suffering the consequences of DePuy hip replacement systems, including pain, metal staining and revision surgery.

Two of DePuy Orthopedics most popular systems are being recalled:

  • ASR XL Acetabular System
  • ASR Hip Resurfacing System

There have been several complications and painful side effects associated with these two hip replacement systems. You may be experiencing pain, swelling or infection in the area as well as increased metal ions in the blood. Patients have reported bone straining, necrosis as well as damage to the nerve, muscles and tissues surrounding the implant area. You could also be suffering from metal staining on the soft tissue near the implant area as well as elevated metal in the blood stream, both of which are hazardous to your overall wellbeing. You may also need to undergo a second or revision surgery to correct these problems.
