The US Drug Watchdog Now Calls Its Recalled DePuy ASR Hip Implant Recipients Initiative Vital Because of The Low Numbers Of People Identified & Offers The Best Attorneys

Share Article

The US Drug Watchdog says, "It is absolutely vital we get every recalled DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implant identified to the best possible attorneys with the focus on compensation, because of the approximately 40,000 devices out there, only 3400 DePuy ASR recipients have been identified by the federal court in Ohio." The DePuy ASR hip implant was recalled in August 2010. According to the New York Times, "There is no data on the number of all-metal hips that have failed prematurely in this country because the outcomes of orthopedic procedures are not formally tracked by the government or private companies?"The US Drug Watchdog says, "We fear there are tens of thousands of recalled DePuy ASR hip implant recipients in the US who, 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 meaningful help in the form of legal representation with the focus being compensation."

Its absolutely vital we get every recalled DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implant identified to the best possible attorneys with the focus on compensation, because of the approximately 40,000 devices, only 3400 DePuy ASR recipients have been identified

The US Drug Watchdog says, "It is absolutely vital we get every DePuy ASR hip implant recipient identified to the best possible attorneys because the DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implants are failing or have failed at an unacceptably high rate, and recipients should be concerned, even if their DePuy ASR has not yet failed. Tragically, of the 40,000 DePuy recalled ASR metal on metal hip implants, only about 3400 DePuy ASR recipients have been identified by the federal court handling the litigation over the DePuy ASR recall." According to the New York Times, "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." The US Drug Watchdog says, "We want to make certain all recipients of the recalled DePuy ASR get to the best possible national caliber attorneys, because compensation is vital when talking about the ordeal of a hip implant replacement, also known as revision surgery. 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, "Its not just the DePuy ASR hip implant failures that have us extremely concerned. We are also hearing from recipients of the Smith and Nephew Birmingham hip device, along with recipients of BioMet Magnum, who have suffered failures, and again we are demanding answers from the US FAD." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

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
  • Elevated levels of cobalt in a recipients blood stream

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 ASR hip implant recipients get to national caliber trial law firms or attorneys, that have the best record in achieving superior results for their clients, with the emphasis being compensation."
