US Drug Watchdog Now Offers To Help All Recipients Of The Recalled DePuy ASR Hip Implant Get The Best Possible National Caliber Attorneys With The Goal Being Compensation

Share Article

The US Drug Watchdog says, "In August of 2010 the DePuy ASR was recalled because these metal on metal hip implants were failing at an unacceptably high rate. So far only about 3300 victims of the up to 40,000 DePuy ASR recipients have been identified by the Federal Court in Ohio. We now believe it is vital every recipient of a DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implant get identified, out of fear the devise could fail in the future." The DePuy ASR hip implants were surgically implanted on tens of thousands of US citizens between 2005 and early 2010. According to the US FDA, symptoms of a recalled DePuy ASR 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 US Drug Watchdog says, "Many US citizens who received a DePuy ASR hip implant have been sent a letter by the device maker offering to pay their insurance co-pay? We say, if you received a recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, you are probably owed much, much more than a insurance co-pay, and we will try to help you find the best possible law firm to help you. If you, or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, please call us immediately at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Because many individuals who received a DePuy ASR hip implant do not want to go through a painful hip replacement surgery, also called revision surgery, they do not complain. 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 DePuy ASR hip implant." It is estimated that between 33,000 & 40,000 DePuy ASR hip implant devices were installed on US citizens between 2005, and 2010. The US Drug Watchdog says, "Even more worrisome to us is the fact that the DePuy ASR hip implant was sold as the right hip implant for younger adults, who wanted to have an active, or athletic lifestyle. We now fear we have tens of thousands of DePuy ASR 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."

Important Update: The US Drug Watchdog has learned that many individuals, who have had a hip implant revision surgery because their DePuy ASR, DePuy Pinnacle, Smith & Nephew Birmingham, or Zimmer metal-on-metal hip implant failed, are not being allowed to keep their failed metal-on-metal hip implant devise. The US Drug Watchdog says, "You paid for your metal-on-metal hip implant device, its yours, and if you have a hospital, or surgeon tell you, that you will not be allowed to keep your failed hip implant device-we want to know about it immediately. Your failed metal-on-metal hip implant device could be important evidence, and we think it is vital all individuals, who are going to go through hip revision surgery because of a metal-on-metal hip implant failure---keep the failed devise."

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