The DePuy Hip Recall News Center offers up-to-date information about the recalled ASR and controversial Pinnacle devices.

DePuy Hip Recall News Center

In August 2010, DePuy Orthopedics issued a recall of two of its hip replacement systems—the ASR Hip Resurfacing System and the ASR XL Acetabular System. These two defective hip replacement systems had already been implanted in patients.


Twelve percent of ASR hip recipients require revision surgery because ASR devices can deteriorate and fail completely. If you experience hip, thigh, or groin pain… pain while walking, rising from a seated position, or bearing weight… or swelling—it could be a sign that your ASR hip unit is defective.

You’ve just learned about the DePuy recall. What now? You might consider legal action. So you’ll want to talk to an attentive advocate who will put your needs above all other concerns.


DePuy admitted that it is to blame for your hip failure. DePuy stated that it is committed to assisting patients and paying for the cost of doctor visits, tests, and procedures. But you’ve been betrayed by DePuy once already… and if you want to stand up to DePuy, then you’ll want a lawyer by your side.

The DePuy hip recall means that patients who already underwent one hip surgery must now undergo a second surgery. But even if the defective DePuy hip is removed, it can leave behind dangerous, maybe deadly fragments.


DePuy put its profits before the well-being of the recipients of its products. Now you need an attentive advocate to represent your interests alone—the right lawyer who will stand by you through the process of demanding compensation for your injuries.
