Recent studies indicate that up to half of the 90,000 patients who received DePuy ASR hip implants suffer from hip replacement problems and will have to undergo painful metal on metal hip replacement revision surgery within six years of their initial operation. The majority of these corrective surgeries are due to a design flaw which allows DePuy hip implants to wear down and release metal debris throughout a patient's body. Actively seeking legal represenation is one way to address these hip replacement problems with the ongoing hip replacement recall.

What Are The Hip Replacement Problems?
Metal ions released by the ASR hip implant can cause bone erosion, extreme pain and kill the tissue surrounding the implant. Symptoms of hip implant failure include a slipping sensation around the implant, inability to do physical activities, and pain in the hip, groin, leg and lower back. These hip replacement complications are the most commonly reported symptoms facing people with metal hip implants.
