Metal-on-Metal Hip Implant Recipients Having Difficulty Discovering What Type of Devices They Have

DePuy Hip LawyerHealth and safety watchdogs are spreading the word about defective DePuy hip implants. The reason for concern is that only about 3,300 recipients of the total of nearly 40,000 recalled devices sold under the brand name ASR have been identified. As Virginia (VA) medical malpractice attorneys, we are disturbed by the fact that many metal-on-metal hip implant recipients are having difficulty discovering what type of implant device they have.

What’s the hold up? Some orthopedic surgeons are having a difficult time finding their patients' records. This is unacceptable and may border on malpractice if doctors are concealing records and medical information. In many to most cases, the metal-on-metal hip implant device maker's representative was in the surgical suite, when the hip implant operation occurred.

If you live in Virginia (VA), North Carolina (NC), South Carolina (SC) or a nearby state and have additional questions or concerns about how to receive reimbursement and compensation for the damage and follow-up medical expenses caused by a recalled DePuy hip implant, please read our free guide: DePuy Hip Implant Recall Medical and Legal Options.
