DePuy Orthopaedics Inc. wants a dynasty, not a debacle. Andrew Ekdahl, whom DePuy officials announced this month as the company's new president, is now entrusted with leading the medical-device business.

My husband was crippled by a DePuy hip implant. Can please someone tell Mr. Ekdahl that his company committed bribery worldwide numerous times, and that DePuy paid hundreds of millions of illegal kickbacks to doctors! Full article at http://www.linkmommy.com/Blog/supporting-inve...

No matter who Johnson & Johnson assigns on top, the company still faces hundreds of lawsuits filed against them in the wake of the ASR hip replacement recall they announced in 2010. It is anticipated that more lawsuits will be filed. http://www.hiprecalllaw.com

Andrew Ekdahl may have inherited a huge problem with his having taken over as DePuy's top honcho. The DePuy hip replacement recall seemed to have unleashed an avalanche of lawsuits with court documents showing that nearly 20 are filed everyday. Johnson & Johnson, Depuy's mother company, also stated in its third quarterly earnings report that there are approximately 3,500 pending ASR hip implant lawsuits as of october. This website http://www.depuyhipreplacementlawsuit.com would give you a good grasp of what has been going on so far.

The trouble that Depuy Orthopaedics Inc. continue to face in connection to its recalled ASR hip systems could be a great opportunity for the company's new president to show what he is capable of. With lawsuits continuing to pile up in courts according to http://www.rotlaw.com/depuy-asr/ , everyone in the pharmaceutical and medical world is waiting to see how the new president would put DePuy back on its feet.

The statute of limitations is almost up on this case! I'm worried for the thousands of victims who still haven't filed a lawsuit. They need to visit a lawyer like http://www.hipimplantrecovery.com/ today! Before time runs out.

This is a good read, thanks for sharing this. I believe that Ekdahl can manage the pressure and issue with his familiarity with the product after staying with DePuy for almost two decades. I read this at the www.depuyhiprecallnews.webs.com

Upon the appointment of Andrew Ekdahl as the new president of DePuy Orthopaedics Inc., he is faced with a huge problem. Ekdahl faces a challenging assignment, but his experience and familiarity with DePuy’s inner workings should serve him well as he adjusts to the top post. Many are hopeful that with Ekdahl as the new head, he will think of ways on how to raise the quality and safety of their products.

This would be a good development I think with regards with the pending cases against DePuy Orthopedics, a unit of Johnson and Johnson, such cases found at the http://www.depuyrecallnewscenter.com/lawsuits...
