Johnson & Johnson Recalls Hip Implant Devices

Getting a hip replacement once is bad enough, but for many people who’d received implants from Johnson and Johnson once was not enough. The need for replacement of the replacements prompted Johnson & Johnson to recall two types of implant devices: ASR XL acetabular system, a hip socket used in a traditional hip replacement; and DePuy ASR hip resurfacing platform, an implant that is intended to preserve more of the patient’s bone.

All the components of the implants have been recalled. Studies show that 13% of patients who received the acetabular product needed a replacement within 5 years. The resurfacing product hasn’t been approved for use in the US.

Joint replacement surgery is a painful process with a lengthy recovery. Lives are disrupted and loved ones are concerned for the wellbeing of the patient. If you or someone you know has one of these devices or any medical device that is not functioning properly don’t hesitate to contact us to learn what options you may have. We’re on your side. Call us at 800-705-2121 and let us get you the help you need.

What Our Clients Say

When my mother was neglected in a nursing home I was referred to The Higgins Firm for help. They did a great job representing my family and obtained a significant settlement. Hopefully, this will keep someone else's parent from being mistreated in the future. Angie S.
★★★★★
I have a large collection practice and don't handle personal injury cases. Instead of simply declining a case, I referred it to The Higgins Firm. They handled everything. My client got a large recovery and I got a large co-counsel fee. The client and I were both very happy. Attorney Bo Melton
★★★★★
The best injury lawyers in Nashville. They represented my son in a car accident case and did an awesome job. James D.
