My personal situation and circumstances make me almost angry. I apologize for that,
but meanwhile and gathering a lot of information, who knows whether it is just DePuy
hip replacements on recall, or is it all of their devices. My full article/blog post on the
topic was just published at

When you find out that you were implanted with a DePuy ASR hip replacement, you should see your orthopedic doctor immediately to determine whether or not you are adversely affected by the recall. As a second step, you should consult with an experienced product liability lawyer to ensure that your rights and interests are protected.

I would have to agree what the other posters are saying. Choosing the right lawyers is nonetheless important when seeking compensation for the injuries associated with the faulty implants. Documents, testimonies, receipts and doctor's appointment records are usually needed to pursue the case. To know more about your rights, I suggest you visit the depuy asr hip replacement lawyers page for more details. Visit http://goo.gl/6oVyX today.

I had not learned of the high level of failure in these hip implants until I started doing some research for work. My Grandmother had a hip replacement surgery around 2002 due to severe arthritis, and since the surgery her condition has only gotten worse. The hip implant actually began to move down her leg and is no longer at the hip where it should be, and she can barely walk. She is in constant pain and is allergic to most of the more potent pain relievers, so this particular issue really hits home with me. All this time I had been blaming the doctor who performed her surgery, even trying to convince her to sue him for every dime he had, but now that I am reading all of these articles about the hip replacement itself being defective, I am starting to think that the anger over my Grandmother's botched hip implant may have been misplaced. I really hope this recall helps prevent others from suffering like my Grandmother has, and financially damages the people that are responsible for this tragic oversight at least enough to get them to start putting more effort into long term research before pushing these products on patients. They should not be more concerned about their profits than actually creating a product that works properly and helps people rather than harms them. If you want to read some more info on the recall, http://www.depuyhipimplantrecall.org explains all of the unfortunate details.

Johnson and Johnson has set aside 1 billion to cover these claims, but I don't think it will be enough considering over 90,000 people may be impacted.

My mom broke her hip a month ago. I guess she broke her hip at the right time--after the recall?

The DePuy Hip Recall has been one of the most important moves made by Johnson & Johnson though it happened too late. As for the issues that is currently surrounding their Pinnacle system, we can only hope that the potential DePuy Pinnacle Recall will not happen too late.

This is a great advice. Indeed, if you are one of those who have been victimized by the defective hip implants of the DePuy Orthopaedics Inc., it would be wise to consult your lawyer to see if you would qualify for a compensation. Of course, before your lawyer could make the decision, you would have to consult your doctor about it. There have been several who have already filed their lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson and its subsidiary DePuy Orthopaedics Inc. as I've read on this website http://www.depuyhipreplacementlawsuit.com which I've come across in one of my researches.

There are indeed many people who are greatly inconvenienced by the faulty hip devices. Getting the right compensation is important especially when one has to undergo another operation to correct the first one. This site http://www.depuypinnaclelawsuit.com offers options in getting the compensation that is equal to the damages created by the faulty device.

Patients who may have received faulty DePuy ASR hip implants are now faced with added health problems, as well as unnecessary emotional distress. We can only hope that people who may have advanced with a legal recourse get the compensation they deserve.

my dr wont say nothing to help. he just smiles at the x-ray and gets rep motion injuries from always patting himself on the back. he may be a phd surgeon but he is 3 feet off the floor unreachable and a jerk. One doctor said that the replacement stinks, then he saw who did it and now wants my copy of the office visit back to "amend" it. these ducks sit too close to be caught at it and when one flaps they all quack. how do you find if your was a recall? teh horsepistol says I got to get it from the dr. HELLLLLLP

I am a recipient of this recalled device and would like to know if there is a support group or association for lack of a better word of others that have been similarly affected?

That is a terrible thing to say. Yr Doctor is not admiring his work, rather he is acknowledging the greatness, the skill and wisdom he has received from god. As for your cheap shot reference of him getting repetitive motion injuries from patting himself on the back.......why who else is qualified to do it? Not some bloody ingrate of a patient who whines and cries and asks all kinds of impertinent inopportune questions and bothers us all to heck with completely unreasonable expectations.
