Johnson & Johnson and DePuy Orthopaedics Defective ASR Hip Replacements Recall

Quantum Legal LLC is currently investigating claims against Johnson & Johnson and its medical device subsidiary, DePuy Orthopaedics, involving the DePuy's ASR XL Acetabular System and DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System. These two ASR Hip Systems have been recalled due to the high rate of failures and new data showing as many as one in eight patients need a second hip replacement.

DePuy's ASR Hip Systems, a form of hip replacement arthroplasty, provided patients an alternative to total hip replacement where the alleged benefits included less bone being removed and less hip dislocations occurring. Unfortunately, these purported benefits are greatly outweighed by the risks and dangers of DePuy's defective ASR Hip Systems.

If you or someone you know has had a hip replacement with one of DePuy's ASR Hip Replacement Systems, please contact us.
