DePuy ASR Hip Implant

It is the belief of numerous surgeons that the DePuy ASR ball-and-socket hip implant cup is too shallow. Because of this design flaw, doctors believe it may lead to improper implantation as well as other health complications such as hip implant loosening and “metallosis,” which is a  disorder caused by the implants movement releasing very high levels of chromium and cobalt ions into one’s blood stream.

As a rule, hip implants should last upwards of 15 years, however numerous patients have reported the DePuy implant systems are failing within two or three years. This failure of the hip implant requires expensive and painful secondary surgeries to have the implant replaced.

Although DePuy has offered compensation to patients following the ASR recall, this compensation may not cover all expenses one is forced to incur. Additionally, this compensation does not cover many of the diagnostic or blood tests that may be required to determine whether or not someone is suffering from metalosis as a result of this defective device.  The assistance provided by DePuy may not cover pain and suffering, lost wages and loss of earning capacity.

Possible DePuy ASR hip implant failure symptoms:

  • Hip pain
  • Thigh and/or groin pain
  • Pain when walking
  • Pain when rising when standing up
  • Pain when weight bearing

If you experienced such symptoms within a few years of your hip replacement surgery, you should make an appointment to see an orthopedist immediately. There is a high chance you were the recipient of a DePuy ASR Acetabular Cup System that has failed prematurely.
