In 2010, Johnson&Johnson issued a worldwide recall of two hip replacement devices (manufactured by its subsidiary DePuy Orthopaedics) because of hip replacement problems. These devices are the ASR XL Acetabular System and the ASR Hip Resurfacing System. The company cited early failure of the devices, resulting in approximately one out of eight patientsí requiring a ďrevision surgery." This surgery is often more difficult and painful than the original hip replacement procedure. provides a wide-ranging information on this.

Check with your physician to understand the expectations for your particular condition. Often patientís will experience an occasional twinge, click, pop, snap or thud at some points in their recovery, and it doesnít necessarily means something has gone wrong. Anchors popping loose or the hip popping out of the socket are things some patients worry about. It can be a concern however, and itís important to communicate with your surgeon if you or your therapists have any concerns about your healing process. For more information, you may refer to .

I think this was the same on the article I have read at , this is very true. There are certain problems seen with the hip implants. The hip implants need to be chosen carefully.
