The metal on metal hip replacements produced by DePuy (ASR XL Acetabular System, Pinnacle and ASR Hip Resurfacing system) were marketed to be the relief patients were searching for when it came to their hip problems. Instead, patients like yourself, were forced to deal with various issues and more surgery to fix the problems these defective medical devices caused.


A division of Johnson and Johnson, DePuy recalled their ASR XL Acetabular System and the ASR Hip Resurfacing System because of the many medical issues these metal hips were causing, including the need for additional surgery to remove the DePuy products. If you are one of the 93,000 patients that received one of these dangerous hip products, make sure you get in touch with us immediately. Some of the issues patients experience include:

  • Dislocated and broken hips
  • Heart issues
  • Nerve damage
  • Kidney problems

The metal on metal hip replacement was an extremely popular hip replacement for a time because of the supposed durability of metal and increased range of motion. For someone suffering from hip problems, the idea that you get your mobility back for a long period of time was a very intriguing proposition. The problem was that the continual rubbing of the metal parts caused metal particles to rub off an enter the surrounding area, including the blood stream. Over time, patients began to experience bone and tissue issues related to the metal particles– these issues were not only painful but often caused an expensive second surgery to remove the metal hip.

Some of the symptoms patients that received a DePuy hip include:

  • Chronic pain
  • Swelling and inflammation
  • Noises- clicking, squeaking and grinding
  • Dislocation
  • Limited mobility
