US Drug Watchdog Now Offers To Help All Recipients of The Recalled DePuy ASR Hip Implant Get Identified To The Best Attorneys Fearing Only A Fraction Have Been Identified

Share Article

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Only about 3300 of the total of nearly 40,000 recalled DePuy ASR have been identified by the federal court in Ohio. We believe by now we should have over 15.000 DePuy ASR recipients identified. DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implants are failing, or have failed at an unacceptably high rate. As a result there was a recall on this hip implant device in August of 2010." 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 group says, "Many US citizens who received an DePuy ASR metal-on-metal 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 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." The US Drug Watchdog says, "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

Here is reality-in many to most cases the metal-on-metal hip implant device maker's representative was in the surgical suite, when the hip implant operation occured. Perhaps this fact will help gel some orthopedic surgeons memories

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We fear only a fraction of the DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implant recipients have been identified so far, and we intend to dramatically ramp up our efforts, to insure every DePuy ASR hip implant recipient understands how important it is to get identified by the best possible law firms, regardless if the DePuy ASR has failed yet, or not." The US Drug Watchdog has actually expanded its metal-on-metal hip implant initiative, with a separate page on their web site, strictly devoted to metal-on-metal hip implants (MOM). The group says, "We are also very focused on the fact that the DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implant were also sold to recipients as the right hip implant for younger adults who wanted to have an active or athletic lifestyle." The US Drug Watchdog says, "We fear we have tens of thousands of DePuy ASR hip implant recipients in the US, who do not want to get identified because of age, or not wanting to go through a hip replacement revision surgery again. Nothing is more important to us than trying to get these recalled DePuy ASR recipients some help."

Important Note From The US Drug Watchdog: "It has come to our attention that many metal-on-metal hip implant recipients are having difficulty discovering what type of metal-on-metal type hip implant device they have. Apparently in some cases, the orthopedic surgeon is having a difficult time discovering the records, for the patients? Here is reality-in many to most cases the metal-on-metal hip implant device maker's representative was in the surgical suite, when the hip implant operation occured. Perhaps this fact will help gel some orthopedic surgeons memories."

The US Drug Watchdog indicates symptoms of the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant failure include:

  • Pain in the Hip Region
  • Problems While Walking or The Inability to Walk
  • Swelling of the Hip
  • General Discomfort
  • Lack of Flexibility

The US Drug Watchdog is the premier private pharmaceutical watchdog in the United States. The group says, We want to make certain all DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implant victims get to the actual trial law firms or attorneys that have the best record in achieving superior results for their clients, and its pretty obvious we have a long way to go."
