In relation to this, be informed that Johnson&Johnson has already implemented the DePuy hip replacement recall. The recalled ASR devices have been found to loosen before bones can grow around the hip implant to keep the implant in place.

According to medical professionals, bones cannot develop properly due to the movement of the implant and may cause patients to experience limping, pain and trouble walking. Various DePuy ASR lawsuit have been pursued by the victimized patients of the companyís defective hip devices.

See for more information.

Hip replacement constitutes one of the great successes of modern medicine, medical experts say, showing that the combination of inadequate regulation and untrammelled commercialism has caused actual and potential harm for large numbers of patients around the world. Although hip replacements are advertised to alleviate pain and gives comfort to a patient, there are reports that opposed the hip replacementís claim. Some patients have decided to press charges against its manufacturer. You may refer to for more information.

Based on reports from medical experts and professionals, many patients have been suffering from pain due to the wear and tear which was cause to metallosis. Though hip replacement was implemented to ease the pain especially those who have joint pain, injuries or accidents. Unfortunately, adverse effects have been associated with the hip replacement systems. Furthermore, I had read some great information from that might be helpful to some patients.

This new type of hip replacement is enlightening especially to those who are candidates of getting a hip replacement surgery. Knowing that everyone has been having problems especially to metal-on-metal implants. Metal on metal components when rubbed together tends to wear or shred metal particles that may flow into the bloodstream resulting to metal poisoning or infection. This should be a good news to everybody, that although some implants may be recalled, a new and safe one has been discovered and hopefully many can benefit with this new type of hip replacement.

Metal on Metal can be very hazardous because of its tendencies to wear off and shed metal particles into the bloodstream. This new approach may be a welcome news to everybody who has been very hesitant to go for hip replacement especially after hearing some problems resulting to hip replacement lawsuits worldwide. See:
