Why Dean Law Firm for Your Hip Recall Case?
Attorney Christopher Dean’s family is full of doctors. He has “scrubbed in” (participated in) at least 75 hip implant surgeries with his dad, an orthopedic surgeon. Christopher understands through experiencing the surgery, the need for hip surgery, the pain involved, the terrible consequences of a total hip revision and the medical science behind it all. Christopher knows how to work with your surgeon and how to hold DePuy accountable.
DePuy Defects and Doctors: DePuy Orthopaedics ASR Hip Implant Recall
This is a hip implant recall. Johnson & Johnson, through DePuy Orthopaedics, manufactured a defective product called the ASR XL Acetabular System/DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System. DePuy marketed this “metal on metal” hip replacement system to doctors while DePuy knew of increasing failure/revision rates. Most probably, DePuy never informed your surgeon of these problems until it issued its Field Safety Notice in March 2010.
Hip Replacement Defect and You
Some patients have no current problems with the defective hip. Others have experienced the following complications:
- Intense pain
- Implant loosening
- Ball and socket dislocation
- Pain and swelling
- Other complications
Many patients have had revision surgery (DePuy hip replaced with another system) because of these problems and/or metallosis (metal particles in the blood). If you have experienced any of the symptoms listed above, or if you believe you have a DePuy hip, please do not wait to take medical and legal action.
Do You Have a DePuy Hip Replacement? What You Should Do Now:
- Contact your surgeon if you believe you may have a DePuy hip replacement system. If so, you have legal rights that must be protected. If you are a candidate for hip revision surgery, make sure the surgeon/hospital retains the DePuy hip after it is removed.
- Find experienced, qualified attorneys to represent you through this recall lawsuit. Before you hire an attorney, make sure the attorney’s fee is reasonable and competitive.
