Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacements

Metal-on-Metal hip replacement manufacturers are being subjected to lawsuits from patients who suffered serious complications from the hip replacement medical devices.  The main hip devices that are subject to the product liability litigation are:

  1. Johnson & Johnson/DePuy: ASR Total Hip Replacement and ASR Resurfacing System Hip (Recalled on August 24, 2010)
  2. Johnson & Johnson/DePuy: Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip
  3. Zimmer: Durom Cup Hip

  7. Smith and Nephew: R3 Liner Hips (Recalled on June 1, 2012)

Metal-on-Metal hip replacement patients have reported problems following the implant surgery including: pain, swelling, and problems with walking. In addition, metal debris spreading in the hip area has been reported due to the metal on metal friction involved from the metal components moving together. In many cases, the complications have required patients to undergo revision surgery.
