Patients sue after receiving faulty hip replacements

DePuy Orthopaedics, a hip replacement manufacturing company is now being sued by thirteen Illinois and Indiana residents after they experienced complications after having hip replacement surgery.

Depuy issued a voluntary recall of two hip replacement products last month, but only one was used in the U.S. Over a 5-year period 12 to 13 percent of the surgeries that used the recalled product caused complications that resulted in the patients needed another surgery.

A spokesperson for Carle Foundation Hospital said that nearly 300 hip replacement surgeries occurred at the hospital and 10 percent of them needed additional surgery. Depuy said that it intends to cover the costs of the patient’s treatment.
