DePuy Hip Replacement Recal

Johnson & Johnson's artificial joint replacement company DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc., has recalled two hip replacement products.

DePuy recalled the ASR Hip Resurfacing System and the ASR XL Acetabular System after data showed that within five years, one in eight patients needed a "revision surgery," which is required when an artificial joint doesn't properly fit or breaks down prematurely.

About 93,000 people around the world have received one of these faulty hip implants.

If you received a DePuy ASR hip implant after July 2003 and experienced pain, problems walking, or needed a second surgery to fix a faulty hip implant, click here to fill out a form. We're working to get the victims of faulty DePuy hip implants the help they need.
