DePuy Orthopaedics ASR Hip Implant Recall Lawsuits

ASR Hip implant Lawsuit Information

The DePuy Hip Systems is offering patients a so-called solution to their faulty hip implants.

But first, DePuy does not maintain a list of patients who received an ASR Hip implant. According to DePuy, patients will need to contact his/her orthopedic surgeon or the hospital where the surgery occurred to determine whether or not patients received an ASR Hip implant.

What does the mega-million dollar orthopedic medical device company say?

"We regret that this recall will be concerning for patients, their family members and surgeons," said David Floyd, president, DePuy Orthopaedics. "We are committed to assisting patients and healthcare providers by providing information through multiple channels and paying for the cost of doctor visits, tests and procedures associated with the recall."

DePuy intends to cover reasonable and customary costs of monitoring and treatment for services, including revision surgeries, associated with the recall of ASR.

Is that enough?

DePuy has sold about 93,000 units of its ASR XL Acetabular System and the ASR Hip Resurfacing System. According to their own data, 12 or 13 percent will require second surgeries to fix hip implant problems. Approximately, more than 11,000 patients will require another surgery putting the patient at risk as well as cause stressors for the patients, their families, the surgeons, the hospitals, their personnel, and the healthcare providers and/or Medicare.

And what does DePuy consider "reasonable and customary costs?"

Regret... that's not enough. Invasive surgery is always costly and dangerous. Who pays for your pain and suffering, loss of income and quality of life while undergoing a second or revision surgery caused by DePuy ASR Hip systems recall? It's all too vague and not as simple as refunding a defective computer.
