Injury from Hip Implants

Friday, November 12, 2010

In August of this year, Johnson and Johnson the manufacturer of DePuy Hip Implants voluntarily recalled the product. This happened after about 400 complaints were received from patients. Up to 93,000 defective units are said to be recalled. The patients who complained were said to have experienced swelling and pain, even difficulty in walking. The systems affected are the ones sold between 2005 and 2009. Some patients, about 11,000 might need to undergo another surgery by 2014 due to the defective system. You may not experience the symptoms today but I guess it will not harm to consult a depuy hip recall attorney soon. At least you will know your options.
