DePuy Hip Implant Injury Attorneys
Serving Central Illinois
Companies offering hip implants should extensively test their products before offering them to patients. There are many other complications that can result from hip replacement surgery; an ineffective implant should not have to be one of them. In fact, the recall of an implant means many patients might have to undergo a second surgery and the discomforts, therapy, and time off work that comes with it.
If you or someone you know has been injured or experienced pain or other symptoms due to the ineffective DePuy ASR Hip System, you have the right to seek compensation for the pain and discomfort you have suffered. Contact the experienced DePuy hip implant injury attorneys of Spiros Law, P.C. at (815) 929-9292 for more information.
Possible Complications of Hip Replacement Surgery
One in eight patients who received the ASR hip replacement have had to go back under the knife for a revision surgery. This forces the patient to undergo a second surgery, a second recovery and puts the patient at risk. Specifically, there are a number of complications that may arise as a result of a hip replacement surgery, some of which include:
- Blood clots
- Disconnected prostheses
- Injuries to nerves
- Formation of extra bone
- Dislocation of replaced hip
Doctors at the Carle Foundation Hospital in Champaign, IL performed almost 300 hip replacement surgeries for Central Illinois patients using the DePuy hip systems.
Before you sign anything with the company in question or say anything to their attorneys, it is in your interest to get a medical evaluation from your orthopedic surgeon. If you have to have a second surgery to repair damage or relieve pain from your initial hip surgery where the ASR Hip System was implanted, you should speak with an attorney immediately.
