The US Drug Watchdog Now Offers To Find The Best Possible Attorneys For All Recipients Of The Recalled DePuy ASR Hip Metal on Metal Hip Implant-Before Time Runs Out

July 6, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog says, “We fear we could be running out of time to identify every recipient of the now recalled DePuy metal on metal hip implant, because of a possible August of 2012 deadline to have all DePuy ASR hip implant recipients identified, and we do not care if the ASR has failed yet, or not. It is absolutely vital we get every recalled DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implant identified to the best possible attorneys with the focus on compensation.” The DePuy ASR hip implant was recalled in August 2010. The US Drug Watchdog says, “We fear there are tens of thousands of recalled DePuy ASR hip implant recipients in the US who, because of age or not wanting to go through a hip replacement revision surgery again, they say nothing, or they have not heard about the recall. Nothing is more important to us than trying to get them some meaningful help in the form of legal representation, and very competent attorneys, that will focus on compensation. Don’t get left holding the bag.” For more information about the DePuy ASR hip implant recall please call the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog says, “We want to make certain all recipients of the recalled DePuy ASR get to the best possible national caliber attorneys, because compensation is vital when talking about the ordeal of a hip implant replacement, also known as revision surgery, and we do not care if the now recalled DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implant has failed yet, or not. Tragically, only about 3400 DePuy ASR hip implant recipients have been identified by the federal court handling the litigation over the DePuy ASR. The problem-there are 40,000 recalled DePuy ASR hip implant recipients in the United States.” According to the New York Times, “The so-called metal-on-metal hips, in which a device´s ball and joint are made of metal, are failing at high rates within a few years instead of lasting 15 years or more, as artificial joints normally do. The wear of metal parts against each other is generating debris that is damaging tissue and, in some cases, crippling patients.” The US Drug Watchdog says, “If you or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, please call us immediately at 866-714-6466.” http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog indicates symptoms of the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant failure include:

  • Pain in the Hip Region
  • Problems While Walking or The Inability to Walk
  • Swelling of the Hip
  • General Discomfort
  • Lack of Flexibility
  • Elevated levels of cobalt in the blood stream of the recalled DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implant

The US Drug Watchdog is the premier medical device, and pharmaceutical watchdog in the United States. The group says, “We want to make certain all DePuy ASR hip implant recipients get to national caliber trial law firms or attorneys, that have the best record in achieving superior results for their clients, with the emphasis being compensation.” For more information please contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
