Wright Medical Profemur Hip Implant

Injuries Caused by Wright Profemur Hip Replacements

For patients suffering with hip damage for years, the Wright Profemur Hip System was a valid option. The Profemur hip is a replacement system, similar to the DePuy ASR or DePuy Pinnacle hip implants. One of the main selling points for Wright's hip replacement product was its versatility. It is supposed to be more flexible than other hip replacement products, offering surgeons more options for tailoring the implant to each patient's exact needs.

However, this product, like many other hip replacement and other medical device products, has caused more problems for patients than they ever expected.

Problems With Wright Hip Replacements

The main virtue of the Wright hip implants was also the root of its primary problems. Because of its flexibility, the implant was too weak in many cases, and very soon after its release it began scraping, bending and breaking. The side effects of these problems have included:

  • Extreme pain
  • Swelling
  • Inability to walk or stand
  • The need for revision surgery
  • Infections

At Galligan Reid PC, we will fight to obtain compensation for the medical costs, out-of-pocket expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering that have resulted from the failed hip implant.
