Have you experienced hip pain after your hip replacement surgery? Peterson & Associates, P.C. are currently investigating defective hip implants - you may be entitled to compensation.

Recently, DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. (the orthopedic arm of Johnson & Johnson) issued a global recall of two of its hip implant devices--the ASR™XL Acetabular System and the ASR™ Hip Resurfacing System. Recently, the FDA issued a warning letter to DePuy for selling hip and other joint products without the agency’s approval. DePuy sold around 93,000 of the units.

DePuy has announced that data received by the company shows that more people than expected who received the ASR Hip System experienced pain and other symptoms that led to a second hip replacement surgery. The recall means that monitoring and testing may be necessary of individuals who have been implanted with either of the DePuy ASR Hip Systems.

If you are uncertain if you have either of the recalled Hip Systems, contact your orthopedic surgeon. Your primary care physician or the hospital where the surgery took place should be able to provide you with the name of your surgeon if you can’t recall who performed the original surgery.

Symptoms of a DePuy ASR™ hip failure include:

  • Unexplained Hip Pain
  • Thigh Pain or Groin Pain
  • Pain with Walking
  • Pain Rising from a Seated Position
  • Pain with Weight Bearing

These symptoms could be a warning that there may be a hip device failure, such as:

  • Loosening of the implant, which occurs when the implant does not stay attached to the bone in the proper position.
  • Dislocation of the implant, which occurs where two parts of the implant that move against each other are no longer aligned.
  • Fracture of the hip bone, which is where the bone around the implant breaks.

A failure of the system could lead to the necessity of a second hip replacement surgery, known as a revision surgery. DePuy advises that regardless of whether you are suffering from the above symptoms, you should schedule a follow-up appointment with your surgeon as soon as possible.
