About the DePuy Hip Implant Recall
The DePuy orthopaedics company issued a voluntary recall in 2010 of the DePuy ASR Hip Implant, a metal hip implant. The defective medical implant had failed to function correctly, and thousands of patients suffered from the medical product failing, requiring surgery to replace it with another implant. As many of the patients who had this implant are part of our older generation, any surgery can be risky and difficult to recover from, often taking up to a year. The personal costs for these people range far beyond just the cost of surgery. The effect upon their quality of life after having a defective implant is usually extensive.
