With 25 years of experience, our Weston medical malpractice lawyer knows what it takes to obtain the best outcome possible for our clients.

Complications from Hip Implants

The need for revision hip surgery in patients with affected DePuy implants originates from complications such as hip system failure, excessive hip pain or discomfort, hip implant device becoming loose, as well as weakness and swelling. Some of the most severe side effects of the DePuy hip implant devices include tumors around the implant and metal fragments from the implant entering the bloodstream, resulting in an increased risk of blood clots and metal poisoning.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) noted approximately 400 complaints from patients in 2008 in regards to these serious injuries due to DePuy hip replacement devices. Unfortunately, the devices continued to be available on the U.S. market until the end of 2010.
