Depuy ASR Hip Replacements

depuy-hipDepuy, a division of Johnson & Johnson manufactured metal-on-metal hip implants, and all-metal hip replacements such as Depuy’s ASR and Pinnacle systems.  These systems carry risks when the metal components of the joint grind together over time and can lead to:

  • Persistent hip and groin pain
  • Swelling or infection
  • Joint failure
  • Need for surgery to replace the joint

Additionally, metal pieces from the joint’s components can enter the bloodstream, leading to problems such as:

  • Cardiomyopathy
  • Impaired renal functioning
  • Thyroid dysfunction
  • Psychological and neurological changes

Because of serious injuries caused by these defective devices over 11,000 lawsuits have been filed against Depuy and Johnson & Johnson.
