Many Americans suffer from degenerative hip conditions, as such hip replacement has become a fairly common surgery. Unfortunately, thousands of Americans are now suffering as the result of a company that makes implants. The product that is known as the DePuy ASR Hip System is defective.
Some people who suffered from hip ailments that necessitated surgery are now suffering again because of this defective product. Many people have even needed a second hip replacement surgery or “revision surgery” as a result.
Defective Hip Implants
Despite its now known defects, DePuy Orthopaedics has issued only a voluntary replacement recall of its DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System and ASR XL Acetabular Hip System. Victims of DePuy’s defective products should not rely on this company for help.
While the company may be offering a “revision Surgery” for their defective product, victims deserve more and need to protect their rights. They should contact an experienced product defect attorney to fight on their behalf.
