Behind the DePuy Recall

The DePuy hip implant was supposed to relieve your pain. We’re very sorry to tell you that it may end up inflicting much more.

DePuy released insufficiently tested hip implants that have caused serious problems in an inordinately large percentage of hip replacement surgery patients, including metal poisoning (metallosis), bone deterioration, and increased risks for future surgeries and implants. DePuy is offering to replace the ASR™ hip implants at their cost in hopes that patients will waive their right to further damages. That means if you accept their offer, you will not receive any compensation for future medical bills, disability, lost wages, or your pain and suffering incurred to date.

If you received a DePuy hip implant since 2003, we can help make sure you receive the compensation you deserve. Tell us about your experience with the ASR XL Acetabular System, learn more about the lawsuit against DePuy and your options, or get answers to our most Frequently Asked Questions.
