Relentlessly Fighting for Your Rights
Millions of Americans have relied on the DePuy knee replacement to give them back the quality of life they once lost due to severe soft tissue or bone defect. This medical device was manufactured by Johnson & Johnson’s DePuy Orthopaedics, and it is meant to implant along the shaft of one’s femur during reconstructive knee surgery. However, despite its promise of offering a new lease on one’s life, this device can potentially cause serious or adverse health consequences.
If you or a loved one has been injured or harmed as a result of the DePuy knee replacement, our Kansas City attorneys of Peterson & Associates, P.C. want to help.
The health risks of the DePuy Knee Replacement include, but are not limited to the following:
- Loss of limb
- Loss of limb use
- Swelling or pain in the knee
- Loosening of the knee implant
- Decreased ability to walk
- Limited range of movement
- Soft tissue damage
- Revision or repair surgery
Types of Hip Replacement Failures
The above symptoms could be a warning that there may be a DePuy ASR™ Hip Replacement device failure, such as:
- Loosening of the DePuy ASR™ implant, which occurs when the implant does not stay attached to the bone in the proper position.
- Dislocation of the DePuy ASR™ implant, which occurs where two parts of the implant that move against each other are no longer aligned.
- Fracture of the hip bone, which is where the bone around the implant breaks.
A failure of the DePuy ASR™ Hip Replacement system could lead to the necessity of a second hip replacement surgery, known as a revision surgery. DePuy advises that regardless of whether you are suffering from the above symptoms, you should schedule a follow-up appointment with your surgeon as soon as possible.
