Nothing is more important to us than trying to getting all ASR DePuy hip implant victims identified, and we will help with the process.

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We are offering to assist every recipient of a ASR DePuy hip implant to determine if their hip implant has already failed, it is in the process of failing, or explain what we know about the potential for failures. We urgently need family members, or loved ones of a hip implant recipient, that was surgically installed between 2005, and early 2010 to ask the family member, or friend, if it was a DePuy hip implant, also known as a ASR DePuy hip implant." They say, "many US ASR DePuy hip implant victims are elderly, or senior citizens, and we are very worried the majority of victims will not complain, even if they are suffering pain, having problems walking, have swelling of the hip, or have lost flexibility. These hip implants were also sold to younger adults as the quote en quote athletic hip implant, for adults wanting an active lifestyle." They say, "According to numerous studies the ASR DePuy hip implant has a very high failure rate, and we think its vital, we do our best to identify all victims." The US Drug Watchdog fears there are 10,000's US ASR DePuy hip implant recipients living in horrible pain, or they are not aware of the recall. The group says, "We could easily have tens of thousands of US DePuy hip implant victims, living each day with a failed hip implant. Nothing is more important to us than trying to getting all ASR DePuy hip implant victims identified, and we will help with the process."
