Hip Replacements

Medical injury by way of hip surgery can result from only from incorrect surgical procedure and lack of aftercare but also through medical devices used for hip surgery. In August 2010, DePuy Artificial Surface Replacement (ASR) issued a voluntary recall of its ASR XL Acetabular Hip System and DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System after it was discovered that metal in the DePuy ASR was causing serious side effects and had a failure rate of one in every eight patients.

Types of Hip Replacement Surgery Injuries 

Although all medical procedures carry risks, errors may occur resulting in further injury or harm to the patient and their loved ones. Such injuries following hip replacement surgery include:  

  • Severe nerve damage 
  • Infection
  • Fracture of the bone
  • Tissue/muscle damage 
  • Walking difficulties 
  • Metal sensitivity and pain
  • And any other hip replacement injuries 

More serious complications of having the hip replacement system included increased metal ion levels in the blood, allowing fluid to collect in the joint and in the muscles around the joint, necrosis and swelling. These can lead to revision surgery to deal with the serious complications that may have arisen and further physical injury.

If you or a loved one has been affected by hip surgery which has prolonged or exacerbated a medical condition, we are here to help.
