Depuy Medical Product Injuries
DePuy Orthopaedics, a division of Johnson & Johnson, manufactures devices that are surgically implanted in patients to repair worn or weakened hips and other joints.
Two DePuy hip replacement products – the ASR XL Acetabular System and the ASR Hip Resurfacing System – were the subject of a massive recall in 2010. Other DePuy implant devices and components have been the subject of FDA scrutiny and warning letters. Many patients have been forced to undergo painful revision surgery.
