Hip Replacement Complications in Los Angeles

Medical technology has come a long way over the years, and competent surgeons can now improve lives with replacement knees and hips. When a broken hip won’t mend and you’re in constant pain, a new hip will certainly look like the best option. However, Hip replacement complications in Los Angeles can leave you in more pain and living with a drastically reduced range of motion. There are currently recalls in place for some devices because of the problems they can cause.

Recalled Devices and Legal Options
The products that are being scrutinized in court include:

  • Johnson & Johnson/DePuy ASR total hip replacement and resurfacing system
  • Johnson & Johnson/DePut Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip
  • Zimmer Durom Cup Hip
  • Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II Stems
  • Biomet M2a and 38 diameter hips
  • Wright Conserve, Dynasty, Lineage and Profemor hips
  • Smith and Nephew R3 Liner Hips

Some of the recalls are on a worldwide level as manufacturers realized that their products were not working as expected. The failure rate for some of these products is as high as 15 percent in the first two years and nearly 50 percent by the six-year mark. Patients who received these products are required to undergo another surgery to have the hip components replaced with better devices that will hold up and perform as expected.
