Depuy ASR Hip Implant


In Aug 2010, DePuy issued a voluntary recall of their ASR Hip System after receiving new, then-unpublished information from a joint replacement registry in the United Kingdom. This information suggested that while the great majority or patients with the ASR Hip System weren’t experiencing any issues, a larger number of ASR patients than formerly reported to DePuy required a second surgery, called a revision surgery, sooner than predicted. It’s really important for all ASR patients to have their hip evaluated by their doctor, though most patients won’t need further surgery due to this recall.

DePuy is working with patients and their health insurers to address hospital expenses without delay connected with the recall. DePuy will also cover recall-related patient out-of-pocket costs , for example co-pays, deductible costs, lost salary and travel costs. There are lots of different types of hip implants available, including a couple of brands from DePuy Orthopaedics, and patients won’t be mindful of what type of implant they have. We inspire patients to do a check with their surgeon or hospice to figure out what type of hip implant they have received.
