US Drug Watchdog Urges All ASR Depuy Hip Implant Recipients to Get Identified and Lists the Most Common Symptoms of a Hip Implant Failure

Share Article

The US Drug Watchdog says, "It is absolutely vital we identify all US recipients of the recalled ASR DePuy hip implant. These artificial hips were surgically implanted on tens of thousands of US citizens between 2005 and early 2010. The ASR DePuy hip implant has been recalled because of a much higher than normal failure rate." Symptoms of a recalled ASR DePuy hip implant failure include pain in the hip region, problems walking, swelling of the hip, or lack of flexibility in the area of the hip. The group says, "Many US citizens who received a ASR DePuy hip implant were sent a letter by the device maker offering to pay the insurance co-pay. What an insult! We say, if you received a recalled ASR DePuy hip implant, you are probably owed much more than a insurance co-pay, and we will try to help you find the best possible law firm to help you." Drug Watchdog says, "If you, or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the recalled ASR DePuy hip implant, please call us immediately at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Our recalled ASR DePuy hip implant victim identification initiative is one of the most complicated campaigns we have ever been involved with. One of our biggest problems is individuals who received a recalled ASR DePuy hip implant may not want to complain because they don't want to go through hip replacement surgery again. Because of this, we are strongly encouraging family members, or loved ones of anyone receiving a hip implant between 2005,and early 2010 to ask if it was a ASR DePuy hip implant." The group says, "We could have tens of thousands of ASR DePuy hip implant victims in the US, and because of age, or not wanting to go through a hip replacement revision surgery again, they say nothing. Nothing is more important to us than trying to get them some help." For more information about the DePuy hip implant recall please call the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com.

Important Note:The US Drug Watchdog says, "We have learned the makers of the recalled ASR DePuy hip implant have been writing recipients of this hip implant and offering to pay their co-pays for the replacement of this hip implant--what an insult." They say, "In reality, recipients of the recalled ASR DePuy hip implant might be owed hundreds of thousands of dollars, or more in compensation, and we find this manufacturers letter campaign to be nothing short of reprehensible. Offering to pay a co-pay-when the victim could be handicapped or crippled for life?" http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

  • Pain in the Hip Region
  • Problems While Walking or The Inability to Walk

The US Drug Watchdog is the premier private pharmaceutical watchdog in the United States. The group says, "Tragically the Internet is loaded with misleading ads about ASR DePuy hip implant compensation, lawsuits, or class actions; unfortunately most of the attorneys or law firms advertising for help with the ASR DePuy hip implant failures are middlemen marketing law firms--not the actual trial law firms that will prosecute these cases." They say, "We want to make certain all ASR DePuy hip implant victims get to the actual trial law firms or attorneys that have the best record in achieving superior results for their clients--period--no middleman marketing law firms, or attorneys."
