Defective Hip Implants

Successful hip replacement surgery can dramatically improve the lives of people who need it by restoring mobility and relieving pain that may have been a constant impairment. Unfortunately, defective hip implants have been manufactured and marketed by numerous medical companies — resulting in many painful implant failures and the need for "revision surgeries" to replace them and attempt to repair the damage.

Historic hip implant failures and recalls have affected products sold by companies including Sulzer Orthopedics, Zimmer Inc., Biomet Inc. and others. In August 2010, after hundreds of FDA complaints, DePuy Orthopedics, a Johnson & Johnson subsidiary, announced a recall of two hip replacement products, including its ASR XL Acetabular System used widely in the U.S. Failures are being attributed to excessive, premature wear and the creation of metal debris that can damage tissue, cause inflammation and require surgical removal.
