DePuy Hip Replacement Recalls



In July of 2010, DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. recalled its ASR hip replacement systems. This worldwide recall included two Johnson & Johnson replacement devices manufactured by DePuy Orthopaedics as well: the ASR XL Acetabular System and the ASR Hip Resurfacing System.

Early failure of the devices, resulting in approximately 12 to 13 percent of patients' requiring a "revision" surgery, are because the ASR devices can deteriorate, resulting in small pieces of toxic metal depositing into your bloodstream. In some cases, the device failed completely. Second hip surgeries are often more difficult and painful than the original hip replacement procedures. It is important to determine if you are at risk.

Being placed in harm’s way due to the use of a medical device is unacceptable. Product manufacturers have the responsibility to ensure that you are safe when relying on their devices. During these difficult times, you are not just another case number to the personal injury attorneys at The Law Offices of Dan A. Robin, Jr.

Call (504) 267-2440 now to talk with our team. Your initial injury consultation is free.


There have been some incidents associated with the use of Johnson & Johnson and DePuy hip replacement devices that have warranted a recall. Don’t let your injuries go by the wayside during these times. Contact a medical professional and a trusted St. Bernard Parish DePuy hip replacement recall attorney if you have found yourself with any of the symptoms associated with these devices.

If you experience any of the following symptoms, it could be a sign that your ASR hip replacement system is defective:

  • Hip, thigh, or groin pain
  • Pain while walking or in day-to-day movement
  • Pain or difficulty rising from a seated position
  • Pain carrying things or bearing weight
  • Swelling or tenderness in the hip, thigh, or groin region

Keep in mind it is important to visit your doctor even in the absence of pain or discomfort, as it could take time for the problems associated with the metal particles to become evident. Your doctor will perform a blood test to determine if you have any heightened levels of metal particles in the blood around your hip. In the event that you need testing or revision surgery, keep track of all your medical expenses.
