DePuy Hip Recall Attorney in Illinois

Hip and knee replacements come with the promise of a better quality of life — restored mobility, less pain and peace of mind. However, too often these implants break down and fail, leading to a situation that is worse than what you were experiencing before. Additional medical tests and more surgeries are needed to fix the problem, driving up your medical costs and leaving you uncertain about your physical condition going forward.

Potential Problems With Knee and Hip Implants

Failed hip replacement devices, such as the DePuy ASR implants, and defective knee implants, in particular the Zimmer NexGen implants, have been known to cause serious complications in patients, including:

  • Infection
  • Damage to the bone around the implant
  • Dislocation
  • Blood poisoning due to metals like chromium and cobalt being shed from the devices as they wear
