DePuy Hip Problems

The DePuy ASR hip replacement recall is different from the other defective hip recalls in that the DePuy hip issues may have no warning signs that alert patients to serious problems with the artificial hip implants. The DePuy hip implants may be asymptomatic in that patients have no pain or obvious problems with their hip implants but may still suffer from metallosis or metal poisoning as a result of the hip implant.
If you or a loved one have had a hip implant, check with your physician as to the type and model of hip implant you’ve received. If it’s a DePuy ASR hip implant, you may be susceptible to metal poisoning that can lead to serious health problems. The metal on metal nature of the DePuy ASR hip implant may cause metallosis, a serious condition that can lead to other serious health issue including tissue necrosis, blood poisoning and cancer.
