DePuy Hip Implant Device Recall in Virginia

DePuy Hip Implant Devices have been recalled by the manufacturer, Johnson & Johnson, because of defects that can cause problems including pain, fractures, grinding, popping and other medical conditions. Other hip implant devices have also caused problems including those by Zimmer and Stryker. I have written about this issue before but it continues to be a hot topic. Hip replacement surgery can be of great benefit to those who require it. I have spoken with patients who have had immediate relief from years of pain. Most wish they had had the surgery earlier. So, it is a real tragedy when the implanted hip device makes the patient's condition worse and potentially leads to another surgery. We do not blame the doctors for this problem as they did not know and had no way of knowing that the hip implant device was faulty and would cause problems. Only when Johnson & Johnson recalled the device did doctors become aware of the scope of the problem. If you or a loved one have had a hip replacement since 2004, contact us immediately as there are time limits for making a claim.
