Baton Rouge, LA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/20/2011 -- According to statistics, about a quarter of a million people in the United States have hip replacement surgery every year. Of those, about a third of them are done with a “metal-on-metal” implant.
DePuy Orthopaedics once manufactured this type of metal-on-metal hip replacement system, which was used in many patients worldwide. Unfortunately, the product has led to complications in many people, leading to numerous complaints and the company ultimately recalling the product. In the United States, the DePuy hip recall took place in August, 2010.
Many patients who received a DePuy hip replacement have had to undergo a second costly hip revision surgery. Studies have shown that about 12 percent of patients with the metal-on-metal implants require additional surgery after the DePuy recall.
Patients who had a DePuy hip replacement are understandably upset about the situation, and many are confused about their options. Some have already filed lawsuits, but others are not sure if or how to file a DePuy hip replacement lawsuit.
