This is actually good news that there are fewer deaths from hip replacement surgeries in Central Florida compared to other places. The innovations used to make the surgeries safer for the patients have really paid off.

These hospitals in the area should be commended and we hope that all other hospitals have the same impressive record. This is certainly very encouraging in light of the numerous complicatons suffered by many people due to product failures. In UK, failure rate for the DePuy ASR Hip systems is almost 50% and revision surgeries may go as high as 20%. Visit for more updates about depuy hip lawsuit.
