DePuy Hip Recall

Johnson & Johnson, the parent company of DePuy, has recalled two types of DePuy hips today. DePuy Orthopaedics is replacing one hip system for a faulty ball and another for a faulty socket after new data shows one in 8 DePuy patients need revision surgery after receiving DePuy hip replacements.
The DePuy hip replacements were being phased out this year to be replaced by “Next Generation” artificial hip devices. It is not clear how many patients have received the DePuy hips at this point.
