Depuy Hip Replacement
A Hip Replacement is a major surgery in which the entire hip joint is replaced by a prosthetic implant. It is designed to restore motion in the hip joint and allow patients to become more active with release from chronic joint pain.
Johnson & Johnson’s pain and joint company DePuy, has issued a global recall of its metal hip replacement due to early failure in a significant amount of patients.These implants can cause pain, discomfort, and swelling of the area long after the healing process from the original surgery is done and implants can completely fail as early as two years after replacement. It is important to get into contact with an experienced Texas hip replacement surgeon if you have been affected by a DePuy Hip Replacement.
• Constant Pain in the Hip
• Problems Walking
• Pain while sitting
These symptoms are normal if occurring right after hip-replacement, but should diminish shortly after surgery. However, if symptoms remain, or come back it is important to contact both your medical physician and a personal injury attorney for an evaluation. You may have a personal injury case against Depuy. There are currently many Depuy hip lawsuits against the manufacturer.
