A product recall may spare some patients from enduring the unnecessary added health problems that they may incur should complications from a medical device arise. Although some products by Johnson and Johnson, including the DePuY ASR hip implant systems, have been voluntarily pulled out from the market by the manufacturer, the damage that has been incurred by some recipients, may be close to impossible to undo.

We have witnessed all types of products being recalled from the market. This is a lesson to companies that they should thoroughly test their products before releasing it to the public to avoid damage. It is quite hard to fathom the fact that more than a few have already suffered the detrimental effects of these recalled hip implant devices. I just want to share this site , they have helpful information about the complications that you may possibly get from a hip implant device.
