DePuy Hip Recall Lawyers in Birmingham
Hip joint replacement surgery has become a popular option for younger individuals, people suffering from sports injuries, and many other patients who want to save a full hip replacement for later in life when it might be necessary for other reasons. However, this common procedure is now causing many problems for people who opted to have a metal ASR SL Acetabular System artificial hip joint installed.
One of the biggest manufacturers of this type of medical device is DePuy Orthopaedics, which is a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson. Although problems started to surface in 2007, the company kept quiet and did not start pulling the product until 2009, with a major recall only finally occurring in August of 2010. Many people's ASR hips are failing within five years, instead of lasting 20 years as they are supposed to operate. There have also been issues with blood poisoning from metal scraping off, and other complications.
