DePuy Hip

In August 2010, the DePuy Orthopaedics unit of Johnson & Johnson recalled the ASR™ Hip System used as a hip implant after more than two years of complaints and complications.

This hip replacement recall affects the following products:

  • ASR™ XL Acetabular System
  • DePuy ASR™ Hip Resurfacing System

Patients have complained of the following problems with their ASR™ Hip System:

  • Loosening, when the implant does not stay attached
  • Dislocation
  • Fracture, where the bone around the implant may have become cracked or broken

Patients may feel discomfort or pain, and in some cases   may even have to undergo an additional artificial hip replacement surgery.

If you believe that you or a loved one were implanted with a ASR™ Hip System, and suffered from any of the injuries mentioned or other side effects associated with this product, you may have a claim.
