Share Article

The US Drug Watchdog says, "There were over 130,000 DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implant surgically installed on US citizens between 2005, and 2010, and we are very focused on getting these DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients identified, if their hip implant device has failed, or is in the process of failing. About one thousand people have already signed up for a national class action, because their DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant has failed, and we think the numbers should probably be in the tens of thousands, so we are initiating a public awareness campaign, that includes access to national caliber personal injury attorneys, who thoroughly understand the issues with metal-on-metal hip implants." According to the New York Times, "Until a recent sharp decline, all-metal implants accounted for nearly one-third of the estimated 250,000 hip replacements performed each year in the United States. Some 500,000 patients have received an all-metal replacement hip, according to one estimate." The US Drug Watchdog says, "If you are a recipient, or a loved one is a recipient of a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, that has already failed, or showing symptoms of a failure, we want to get you identified, and we want to make certain you get to the best possible national caliber personal injury law firms, to ensure you receive the best possible compensation."

According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "The so-called metal-on-metal hips, in which a device's ball and joint are made of metal, are failing at high rates within a few years instead of lasting 15 years or more

The US Drug Watchdog says, "With over 130,000 DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implants that were surgically installed on US citizens, combined with the fact that metal-on-metal hip implants are failing, we are calling our DePuy Pinnacle hip implant initiative our most important medical device campaign ever. The focus of this campaign is getting victims of a failed metal-on-metal DePuy Pinnacle hip implant identified to the best possible attorneys, with goal being compensation. According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "The so-called metal-on-metal hips, in which a device's ball and joint are made of metal, are failing at high rates within a few years instead of lasting 15 years or more, as artificial joints normally do. The wear of metal parts against each other is generating debris that is damaging tissue and, in some cases, crippling patients." Symptoms of a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant failure include pain in the hip region, problems walking, swelling of the hip, or lack of flexibility. The US Drug Watchdog says, "If you, or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, please call us immediately at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.com

The US Drug Watchdog says,"The DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant, that is now the subject of a national class action, and the DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implants, that was subject to a recall in August of 2010 are not the only metal on metal hip implant devices, that we are focused on. We have a complete list of metal on metal hip implant makers on our web site, and tragically we are hearing from victims of other metal on metal hip implant device failures that are not DePuy, so we will be evolving our metal on metal hip implant initiative in the near future." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog is the premier medical device, and pharmaceutical watchdog in the United States. The group says, "We want to make certain all DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant recipients get to the actual trial law firms or attorneys that have the best record in achieving superior results for their clients, in the event their metal on metal hip implant fails, or is exhibiting symptoms of a failure. In the instance of the DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implant we could be talking about 100,000+ potential victims."
