Depuy hip replacement

Last year, an old aunt of hubby's underwent hip replacement surgery. Took her more than six months to walk properly again. Well, no everyone is that lucky i guess. Recently, i heard that DePuy Orthopedics, owned by Johnson & Johnson, announced a recall of 93,000 hip replacement systems. A lot of people experienced severe pain and swelling after having DePuy Hip Implant that a second hip replacement surgery is needed. It could be due to a defective DePuy Hip Implant. If you have the time, you can read this Depuy lawsuit. If you are affected by this DePuy Hip Implant, you may want to contact the law firm below for further assistance.

I’ve read many posts on this Johnson & Johnson hip replacement recall and I personally think it’s a very sad episode. A hip replacement failure can mean serious injuries for the patient, aside from the revision surgery that the patient will very likely face. Patients should attempt to be very watchful for certain signs that their hip replacement device is failing. For example, swelling of the hip area, popping or clicking, pain on a regular or chronic basis, loosening or implant dislocation, and even fractures are all fairly good signs that the device is about to fail or has failed. It’s good to know that a new registry is now set up to track problems with hip and knee implants across the United States in light of the recent 90,000 recall cases from Johnson&Johnson.
